Vaneshi: Aurora does exist for example. Seriously it exists there are pictures of it and I'm not a conspiracy nut. It's described as a black flying triangle that is utterly un-aerodynamic and has three bright white lights on its belly at night.


Huh, go figure, you're a lunatic. Who would have guessed? Do we also have warp drives but the government is keeping it secret?

And once again we violently agree, QA. "Aurora" was the initial code name for the advanced technology bomber that became the B-2 Spirit. (Source)

Sorry, conspiracy fans...no hypersonic single-stage-to-orbit magic aircraft yet.

Just needs the secret rocket fuel from under the neighbor's kitchen sink.

opiumpoopy: Cyno01: toetag: 230 nautical miles in 6 minutes = mach 5?

that's roughly 2600 miles an hour.....  isn't mach 5, 3,800 mph?

Does mach change with altitude? I would assume the speed of sound varies a bit depending on the density of the atmosphere, or for measurement purposes is "mach 1"  the speed of sound at STP, like the "speed of light" is in a vacuum?

Speed of sound in air varies with the square root of (absolute) temperature.

It's quite cold at 60,000 ft.

Haven't actually checked the math.


At 60,000 feet, the speed of sound is 660 mph.  Mach 5.1 would be 3,367 mph.

Mister Peejay: Notabunny: AliceBToklasLives: Cool.  Now time to design one that doesn't smash into the ocean.

fta the vehicle continued to send back telemetry data until it splashed down into the ocean

They said it "splashed down". That sounds so peaceful and survivable. I agree with you. Anything hitting the water at 3,800mph has "smashed" into it.

Quote the next few words...

TFA: After exhausting its 240-second fuel supply, the vehicle continued to send back telemetry data until it splashed down into the ocean and was destroyed as designed.


I don't think you have to design something to be destroyed when it crashes going 3,800mph. The birdhouse I made when I was 8 would certainly be destroyed if it smashed into the ocean at 3,800mph, but I wouldn't say that I designed it to do that. I just didn't design it NOT to do that.
