Air Force Gears Up For Hypersonic Missile Test
The U.S. Air Force has announced another test of the X-51 Waverider coming up on March 22nd. This will be the latest in only a handful of tests of a new supersonic combustion ramjet engine, also known as a scramjet. The test should involve flying at Mach 6 for about four minutes. Hopefully we’ll have see some exciting results from that test flight in a week or so.
