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
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.
