NASA FUNDS LOCKHEED TO DESIGN A SUPERSONIC DRONE FOR THE AIR FORCE.

NASA awarded Lockheed Martin a modest $892,292 earlier this month to study the feasibility of developing an unmanned hypersonic spy plane called the SR-72. This superfast recon drone, first teased in November 2013, would fly at speeds of Mach 6.0, or 4,500 mph. That’s almost double the speed of the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, which made its first flight 50 years ago.

ooo

Scramjets are, structurally at least, pretty simple...
