Zoom!!! Technologists working with The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and The United States Department of Defense have succeeded with the creation of what likely is the world’s fastest aircraft! However, it has been lost!
U.S. military agents set up an initial test of the hyperjet called The Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle; HTV-2. This super-technical aircraft is supposedly capable of reaching acceleration rates that are twenty times the speed of sound. This is equivalent to 13,000 miles per hour!
Where a normal flight from Los Angeles to New York City would last for roughly six hours, HTV-2 could make this trip within twelve minutes! This vehicle was being hailed as the next advance in air travel. Yet, now, military officials can not find it! Today, a flight that began at Vandenberg Airforce Base in California had all contacts severed twenty minutes into the trip.
DARPA researchers seemed to have searched for the vessel for forty-five minutes after contact was lost with it. It was after that time when they made tweets, announcing that HTV-2 was no longer being tracked, and that the ship has the capacity to self-destruct if it loses control. HTV-2 is supposed to have self-submerged into the ocean after a failed flight.
A prior test of a similar vehicle was a failure, also! During April 2010, military researchers launched a prior construction of HTV-2. After nine minutes of flying, contact was lost with the aircraft!
U.S. defense reseachers are in efforts to create airships that can respond to global emergencies within shortened lengths of time. These aircraft are intended to achieve flying speeds of mach 20, or more. This would allow the ship to reach and to intercept any missiles or vehicles that are aimed at The United States, eliminating them before they reach their targets.
N.A.S.A. and U.S. Defense Department technologists are finding the efforts to create a terrestrial vehicle, capable of travelling at hyper-accelerated speeds, somewhat difficult. They are seeing that the composition of the atmosphere is working against vehicles that are attempting to reach additionally-pushed propulsions, with naturally-occurring forces of the planet slowing them down.
