could be. Its interesting to try and make sense of project/aircraft names. sometimes the names are pretty wicked but leave you wondering. Why name it that?

Like for instance.
I've wondered how dark star got its name.

Was it arbitrary and random? Was there other planes with "dark" in front like dark denotes a lineage of ISR ?

If not, could there have been maybe a dark and a bright star being developed at the same time by lockheeds skunk works team that was developing recon birds and we only heard about the dark star? Like dark star a early polecat/rq-180/170 mission attempt and the other for the other route being a early 1990s high speed recon attempt. But we only got to hear about the drak star. Maybe they could have been envisioned to worked together like quartz. Dark star and bright star team.

I dunno more speculating on my part but I always wondered where they got the name for dark star.

DarkStar was simply following in the Lockheed naming tradition. Previous airplanes had names like JetStar, TriStar, Lodestar, Shooting Star, etc. Others kept to the stellar theme as well: Starliner, Constellation, Sirius, Starfire, Altair, Vega, Starfighter, and more.

I was going to say, the name "dark star" had nothing to do with the DOD and everything to do with the Lockheed marketing department.

Easy-peasy. They got it from John Carpenter and Dan O'Bannon, of course.

At 0:56 in that clip I am sure I have seen that planform somewhere else. Dunno, maybe not

Hey i know how everyone feels about UFO type videos but this one is a doozie.

this video claims to show photos taken from a US sub and it shows clear triangular craft coming out of the ocean. the video thinks they are UFO's but i think and I'm sure a few of us here will think this might be one of ours.

with some of the stories that we have all read in the past year it is a STRIKING resemblance.

www.youtube.com...

its interesting how things seem to be trickling out fake or not the video looks like it might have pics of a real US craft

Why announce today. When you can push it back to the beginning of the year.

I expect that to get pushed back even more.

No it won't. They can't afford to push it back farther. They are already losing a ton of money from R&D for this year. Push it back more and they lose more.
