# Did VentureStar technology lead anywhere?

VentureStar seemed to make a bit of progress before being cancelled in 2001. Did any of the technology developed for this program lead anywhere? For example, its aerospike engines or high-tech fuel tanks?

It seems that pretty much all rocket technology after then didn't deviate too far from previous generations.
