This was the 2nd test of this system. The first was scrubbed and sent into the ocean after a problem. It is launched on a rocket into space and then released. This time they lost radio contact of the plane after release. I haven't seen anything that says where or if it has come down.

The aircraft flew more than 9 minutes of data were collected before an anomaly caused the signal was lost.

Downrange trackers were unable to relocate the HTV2 but the vehicle "has an autonomous flight termination capability.

The current state of secrecy for our nation is like "show and tell". Show what we have and tell alllllll about it.

Did anybody else wonder why NASA isn't developing this? I must admit when i saw DARPA, i thought "they finally figured out how that UFO works"; guess not.
