X-37 cancellation looms

2 June 2004: NASA's 'scramjet' funding in jeopardy, Daily Press

"Funding for hypersonics research has not been consistent over the past four decades. After President Bush announced in January his vision to send humans to the moon, Mars and beyond, NASA dropped plans to fund a larger hypersonic craft called the X-43c. Researchers often speak about past military and NASA programs that have run out of money just as they showed promise." Editor's note:This is all a bit crazy: NASA pushes the envelope where no one has gone before, and then the money to actually exploit this accomplishment is yanked out from under the agency.
