In regard to Pyros' post, Bill Sweetman is a highly respected journalist employed by Jane's Defense Weekly. His journalistic work, as is any of the available public sector information on this craft, is speculation.
However, Mr. Sweetman's intimate knowledge of the military aviation industry and the USAF's R&D certainly qualifies him to knit together tidbits of information and come up with a hypothesis that reasons the existence of such a craft.
What I'd like to know is how the Aurora goes about running its engines at Mach 6/7 without melting them in seconds... even using fuel as coolant, heat must be a nightmare.
