Aviation week has posted a great article on a spaceplane called the SR-3 Blackstar.....You might know the aircraft by SR-73 / Mothership / Brilliant Buzzard / Penatrator.

It was the successor to the XB-70, and it can carry a spaceplane around mach 3.3 and release it around 103,000 feet, then release the XOV (experimental orbital vehicle), which will then climb into LEO.

Heres the link, its a good read, and hopefully with it being shelved, it will find its way out of the "black" world.

Two-Stage-to-Orbit 'Blackstar' System Shelved at Groom Lake?

For me, this story calls into question all of that UFO / alien tech / antigravity / black triangle stuff. Why would the US go to the trouble of building sort of a super secret space shuttle using conventional chemical rockets if they have all of this exotic tech?
