    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 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.

    This is the second time they've "lost" it in 9 minutes. To me, it sounds like if they're going to use it offensively, they'd better make sure the launch point is within less than 9 minutes of the target.... [​IMG]

    It may very well be true. It may very well NOT be true. Maybe this failure was staged. In others words, it works. I try not to be cynical, but that doesn't mean I'm not skeptical.

    Pentagon: Yep, We Got Hacked

    "U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense William S. Lynn III has admitted that the Pentagon suffered a serious security breach in 2008, an incident he categorized as "the most significant breach of U.S. military computers ever." Though the breach was reported in the press at the time, the DoD has only now publicly acknowledged that it occurred -- and that it took 14 months to clean up the mess left behind."

    Well, that is certainly believable...though I remember when I was in 4th or 5th grade and everyone was all impressed with the new Stealth bomber. Found out later it first flew before I was born. Sometimes "new" things have been around for awhile.

    Hence the need for Top Secret test areas like the one about 90 miles north of Las Vegas. The hypersonic aircraft hasn't been tested there because there are no launch facilities (yet) to accomodate its insertion into sub-orbital flight. As for the stealth bomber (I'm assuming you mean the B-2), those were tested, along with the F-117F/B and the B-1B, at the Groom Lake facility and the other test range about 200 miles north of Las Vegas.
