That's cool. Aurora was actually once in the budget accidentally. Why would the SR-71 be retired without a replacement? It takes time to move
satellites and they are dependant on good weather. I have an Air Force buddy (mechanic) who claims to have worked on it, but he was also drunk at the
time so I don't know if he is full of crap. He claimed it would do more like Mach 8. I honestly don't think the human body can take those speeds,
but I am neither a doctor nor a physicist.
