Submission + - DARPA hunts airplane-like spacecraft that can go Mach 10 (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: The idea is cool enough — build a reusable aircraft-like system that could easily and relatively cheaply launch satellites into orbit. The kinks will be that the system need do that for somewhere in the $5 million per launch range and oh yeah, go well over Mach 10. As you might have guessed, the project to develop such a system is being put forth by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) which will more fully detail the program, known as the Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1) in October.
