    it was an 8 year 230 million dollar project...

    and

    "After burnout, the vehicle descended and splashed into the ocean, as planned, and will not be recovered "

    "the vehicle descended and splashed into the ocean, as planned, and will not be recovered"

    "Reinforced carbon-carbon composite material was added to the leading edges of the vehicle's vertical fins for this week's flight"

    Fine, you wanna keep the thing? Ride in it.

    I'd like to see you control an aircraft that can circle the globe in 3 hours.

    I can guarantee that the government currently spends that much in a day on useless things all the time. This was research, or are you against the whole science thing?

    Research and progress are a good thing. California politicians spending money to put bums' stolen shopping carts into refrigerated storage is not.

    the fact is there is absolutely no point in having an aircraft that can circle the globe in 3 hours.
    can you tell me what the purpose of that aircraft is and why its important to spend 230 million dollars on it?
    im not against science or research, but id rather they raise the funds for it like any independent scientist and not waste my tax dollars on it when they could be better spent fixing the shitloads of problems we have in our country

    There was absolutely no point in flight. There was absolutely no point in going into space. There was absolutely no point in landing on the moon.

    Purposes? Hmmm... I dunno... how about shoving a missile up Osama's ass from your backyard in 30 minutes flat. Sub-orbital passenger aircraft, trips to anywhere on the globe in under two hours. Trips between research facilities and the ISS without the need of a space shuttle. Of course locking in a low earth orbit requires a speed of about Mach 26 so we've got a ways to go.

    And talk about spyplanes the likes of which nobody has ever imagined.

    You also unfortunately limit your views of technological applications to THIS planet. Flights between Mars outposts and orbital craft, for example. A space shuttle type vehicle would be completely impractial in that sort of situation.

    Your government wastes tax dollars like there's no tomorrow. I'd prefer seeing my money used to further technological advancement that has substancial uses than spent to watch my every move 24/7.

    we can agree to disagree but having a mach10 paper airplane is a waste of money imo

    There's a lot more outer space than deep blue. That and we can deal with zero gravity a bit better than crushing pressure.
