Here is a little tidbit to add to the fire in the sky...
One new technology for aircraft propulsion is to add golf ball like dimples to the outer hull of a secret aircraft so that a laminar airflow boundary
layer is created that keeps the atmosphere AWAY from the outer hull thus removing aerodynamic friction. BUT INSTEAD of a rough eddy layer of AIR, a
heated plasma is created using microwaves generated by many small cavity resonators which force inject the heated plasma through tiny openings at the
bottom of the outer hull's concave dimples so that the hull dimpling creates a rough boundary layer of super heated gas plasma that sticks to the
hull via plasmadynamic micro-eddy currents which keeps normal atmosphere away from the hull thus allowing the aircraft to go into high mach speed
territory (Mach 15+).
My guess is onboard fuel cells power microwave generators to superheat probably nitrogen gas (maybe argon too?) to a plasma state which is then force
injected outside the craft hull to force the outer atmosphere away from the outer hull thus reducing aerodynamic friction. Forward propulsion is
possibly liquid methane pumpjet ... Not sure tho!
Liquid methane pumpjet would also explain doughnuts on rope contrail!!!
This is a tidbit from some aerospace engineers
I know who have a working knowledge of plasmadynamic-oriented aircraft propulsion systems.
Plasma injection is actually an old technology from 1986 ... The hull dimpling is from patents filed by Porsche in 1985 used on race cars to improve
aerodynamics via laminar airflow management! ... Imagine how far this technology has come to this year 2015 for high speed aircraft !!!
