Only skipped through it, but Space Plane? If it's about the Kliper then that's hardly a space plane.

The article states "scientists hope will include funding for ... and a joint programme with the Russians to develop a "space plane."

Note the key word "HOPE" the funding is included for Klipper.

According to this article:

that is looking unlikely.
