The article comments on Mach 10 scramjet flight conducted by U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). According to the author, any near-term applications of scramjets will be military and that is where the funded effort is continuing into several flight tests that bear similarities to NASA's Hyper-X. The author further says that the NASA team and Defense Department are to be lauded for attacking the scramjet problem in workable pieces and finding a good balance of caution and risk-taking that resulted in two successes and one failure in the X-43A flights.
