Skylon's engine is a combined cycle rocket - carrying liquid oxygen for use in space and extracting/chilling liquid air in the atmosphere. In both stages of flight the fuel is liquid hydrogen.
All this based on known, if advanced, engineering principles. The big "IF" was the precooler, which is to take in superhot air and liquify it on the fly, and that was successfully tested this summer. That precooler will have lots of uses besides Skylon.
