    US military to launch fastest-ever plane

    US military to launch fastest-ever plane | World news | The Guardian

    By the time you finish reading this sentence, the Falcon HTV-2, the fastest plane ever built, could have flown 18 miles. It would get from London to Sydney in less than an hour, while withstanding temperatures of almost 2,000C, hotter than the melting point of steel.
    The United States is so bad ass.

    Halfway around the planet in less than an hour. Incredible.

    It has been flying since the 90's. It was just recently declassified.

    Here is a fun fact, in that aircraft at top speed, if you cross the California coast heading east and start a turn to the right, you'll be heading south somewhere in the neighborhood Louisiana.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
