What do you think it looks like the Aurora, would be interesting to see what pattern con trails it produces whilst in flight and if it makes use of pulse detonation thrusters.
The US military's Falcon HTV-2 - which travels 22 times faster than a commercial airliner - was launched amid promises of flights from London to Sydney in less than an hour.
Attached to the back of a rocket, the plane blasted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, before detaching at the edge of space.
But after around nine minutes, the craft stopped sending signals and is believed to have plunged into the ocean.
