China’s scramjet claim puzzles US
10 November 2015, Nirapad News: China’s success in flying a scramjet-powered hypersonic aircraft, trailing the U.S. by no more than a few years, reveals that its engineers have overcome severe cooling problems first mentioned five years ago. The successful test, announced in October, followed the January 2014 flight of a Chinese hypersonic glider.
The China Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics says the engine of the aircraft, which must have been unmanned and probably quite small, is the world’s first given the closeness of the Chinese tests to the American flights it appears as though this is yet another project the Chinese have tapped into our intelligence database and stolen information. What else can explain the incidental timing of their project compared to the United States project?
