Hypersonic plane could fly from New York to Los Angeles in less than an hour

There are 7 comments on the www.nydailynews.com story from Aug 15, 2012, titled Hypersonic plane could fly from New York to Los Angeles in less than an hour. In it, www.nydailynews.com reports that:

Boeing’s experimental X-51A will be launched from a B-52 bomber Tuesday and its five minute flight could eventually lead to a revolution in air travel comparable to switching from propellers to jets, scientists say.

Boeing’s experimental X-51A WaveRider plane is set to make a 300 second experimental flight Tuesday. That’s just five minutes, but to put it in perspective, the WaveRider could potentially fly from Los Angeles to New York in 46 minutes. The plane travels at speeds in excess of 3,600 mph, or five times faster than the speed of sound, the Los Angeles Times reported. It earned its name because it rides its own shockwave

Great !!

Only one problem.

It will take LONGER to go through airport security than the actual flight takes.

Getting into orbit and then re-entering above your destination would be a lot faster...and safer.

Time to let the private sector work out commercial space travel.

Air Force X-51A WaveRider Hypersonic Jet Crashes
By Dana Hughes | ABC OTUS News – 2 hrs 13 mins ago

51A WaveRider Hypersonic …

The Air Force confirms that a hypersonic jet called the X-51A WaveRider crashed in the Pacific Ocean today after one of its control fins failed. The unmanned aircraft was launched from an Air Force B-52 bomber over Point Mugu Naval Air Warfare Center at around 11:36 this morning, Pacific time.

At first, the launch looked good. The WaveRider separated from the B-52 as planned, and its booster rockets fired properly. Then, after about 16 seconds of flight, the control fin was found to be faulty and the jet tumbled out of control.

What with OBAMA KILLING NASA,and GUTTING the Military,the talent for these projects are now UNEMPLOYED!!..This is the result!

Actually, it was your fault for radiating such negative energy.
