Heh, a lesson learned from the YF-12, SR-71, F-117 et al.  If possible, publicize.

Something does not smell right here.  Since when does the military publicly announce they are testing a new aircraft or a new whatever for that matter?  History tells us they test these things in secret and only years or decades later do we actually learn about them.  This scramjet tech has been talked about for a very long time, I don't believe this is the very first test of it.  The military guards its secrets, so whatever is happening here is something other than what we are lead to believe.

Here's the deal with the Government. If we're being told about these tests, or that they are "looking" in to something, they have already achieved it and/or produced it. The intelligence community works in a very systematic manor that never changes. Believe me on this one as being a career military man (recently retired) and a part of the S.O. community, I not only witnessed this but was a part of the intelligence system. :tu:

Yep.  That was #2 to go into the briny deep.  There's only one left and the Air Force isn't sure it wants to commit it to flight quite yet.  Can't imagine why. ;)

If they used this type of propulsion for Mars space travel, it would take us much much longer to get there. This little jet only acheived Mach 5, where as, out in space these rockets travel 37,000 MPH (Mach 48)!! We got to mars in just under 9 months. This jet would have to travel at a substaining speed of Mach 5 for 56 months before it would reach Mars (almost 5 years)!

Helios 2 Space Probe - Fastest man made object in the world with a Top Speed of 150,000 MPH ( Mach 195 ) If we took this kind of propulsion, we would reach mars just over 1 month. Almost a month and a half. Reason it was so dang fast was because it went to study the Sun, and the suns gravitational pull yanked it right in! Now that is FAST! Instead of it taking us 9 years to get to Pluto, we could be there in just 2.7 years :)
