Aerospike Engines

Aerospike engines.  Why aren’t we using them now?

Over 50 years ago an engine was designed that overcame the inherent design inefficiencies of bell-shaped rocket nozzles, but despite much research in the 60’s, 70’s and 90’s and was to power the replacement for the Space Shuttle.
