Next generation killer weapons: DARPA releases video of hypersonic missile velocity simulation

August 26, 2011 CALIFORNIA – An unmanned glider streaks over the Pacific Ocean at 20 times the speed of sound in a video released Thursday by a U.S. defense research agency experimenting with technology that could give the military the ability to strike any part of the globe within an hour. The Aug. 11 test ended early when a problem caused the craft’s safety system to force it down into the ocean but the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency said valuable data was collected in the nearly three minutes of free flight at the hypersonic speed of Mach 20 – about 13,000 mph. The Falcon Hypersonic Test Vehicle-2 was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., atop a Minotaur 4 rocket that carried it to the edge of space, performed what DARPA described as a series of aggressive banks and turns, and then released the glider. The Darpa simulation speed comparison  “gives us a visceral feel for what it means to fly at Mach 20,” DARPA Director Regina Dugan said in a statement. Hypersonic is the term for speeds greater than Mach 5. Various hypersonic programs have typically produced brief flights – measured in seconds or minutes. This month’s test was the second of two missions in DARPA’s HTV-2 program, which is aimed at learning how to fly at such speeds and advancing the technologies needed for long-duration hypersonic flight. –Physics.org

    Ummm.. I wonder if this project came from our “Balanced Budget”!
    This is just what we need …another new weapon so we can annihilate what ever will be left!
    Strange how us little people seem to learn from the mistakes we made, but the ones who run our countries are still making new ways to destroy each other.

    I guess this is the one they lost contact with the other day. I wondered what would happen to it. Glad it touched down in the Pacific where it was planned to and not in the middle of a major city.

    Russia lost this spaceship the other day also.

      Warren, Mystery vapor trail off California was a missile from a Chinese sub. A demonstration to the us military of their capability. oops. That’s classified. According to Wilcock, insider confirmed it.

  5. I talk about the development of hypersonic missile technoloy in my book and how it’s been pursued by the U.S., China, India and Russia and the frightening reprecussions this will have on the next major conflict. Naval ships and huge army columns could now be wiped out in one strike and there is virtually no defense against these new ballistic systems. Warfare has entered another level.

    I would not be surprised if the sonic boom from that thing alone would be devastating…

  7. Woo Hoo!! We have another way to annihilate each other.

    It’s no wonder God isn’t happy with us. I’m just surprised we’ve lasted this long. But I’m beginning to believe that He is running out of patience.

    Be blessed and Maranatha

    Weapons are getting deadlier by the day, so it seems fitting that the last battle may be fought on horses.

    Completely insane on so many levels. Absolute proof our government hasn’t a clue; the elected officials merely puppets of unseen forces.
