Nope.  Just more Nazis doing the rocket thing.

Sabre air-breathing rocket passes PDR. The demonstrator core of Reaction Engines' air-breathing Sabre rocket propulsion system has successfully passed a preliminary design review, Aviation Week reports. The assessment clears the way for a follow-on critical design review, subsequent development, and test of the core at a newly built facility in Westcott, England, in 2020.
This would be awesome ... The complete engine, ultimately built on the core to incorporate a precooler, rocket engine, and ramjet, is designed to provide air-breathing thrust from the runway to Mach 5 and beyond for hypersonic aircraft. In rocket mode, it should also provide low-cost access to space. Bringing such a promising technology into reality would be something very cool to see, obviously. But there's a long way to go.


Ooooh! Nice. I've been waiting for news on Sabre for ... thirty years?

This new Project Orion is boring as shiat.  They should bring back the old one.

They were in talks with the Ukrainians to launch Tskylon from there, but talks fell through some years ago. They're looking at a site in Canada now; maybe that's what you're remembering.

"Private" Chinese start-up. Aren't these all civilian fronts for the military?
