DARPA HTV-2 Falcon Test Flight Set for Thursday

"The mission's goal is to demonstrate hypersonic gliding and maneuvering techniques at the edge of space at speeds eclipsing 13,000 mph. The test flight could help the Pentagon develop a prompt global strike program to deliver conventional warheads to faraway targets in less than an hour."
