The Air Force's Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2—designed to attack global targets at Mach 20—has disappeared nine minutes into its first test flight, just after separating from its booster. Contact was lost, and it hasn't been found yet.

Yeah I remember first hearing about this and thinking it was kind of strange. Unless it misfired and somehow left orbit, it shouldn't be too hard to find the thing whether or not they can communicate with it.

Maybe it decided it didnt want to kill anybody, and left?

Maybe Naval Space Command grabbed it when it entered the atmosphere??

Or maybe somehow it entered a wormhole when it hit its top speed...

It obviously has the same warp drive that the event horizon had, and is now in hell, and will return in a few years, though posessed by beings from a "dimension of PURE CHAAAOOOSSS!!!"

Obviously.

I also find it fishy that it "disappeared" . Surely radar or other forms of technology could at least find evidence of where it went. And surely a plane was already high in the air to take video of the launch. My logic says that the official purpose of this craft is a cover story for its real purpose. Only the imagination could speculate on that. Where it is, when it is, I have no Idea.

Do you know any aircraft that travel at Mach 20 speeds? Chances are this thing had a major structural flaw, which would tear the entirety of it apart at speeds anywhere near half that fast. Chances are its scattered in pieces.

I hope they find wreckage of it. Hate to think it was hi-jacked. If some one hacked the computers some how they could have flown it any where.
