I remember hering rumors of this craft back in 1998. My brother who works in their Black projects area never said a word about it. Tramslated that means he could not say anything about it because he knew about the program and could not reply or even know about it.
 
Who's winning the space race now? Or should I say "ask yourself who won the space race of the year, on December 31st 2013".
 
I think asking "who is winning the space race now" is the wrong question. The question that we should be asking is, "how many private companies will be involved in government-related projects/missions".
 
Private companies are the only chance we have to keep from falling behind to China or Russia. Even Red Bull has a better manned space program than our country! At least currently.
 
They are not only our only chance to "catch up" to anyone, they are our only chance at a FUTURE of space exploration, travel, anything. Think about all the programs currently underway in the private sector. You could take just 1/4th of that activity and it would be more than what our entire government has done in the last 50 years!

The future is bright so long as the private sector continues at its current pace. Bank on that!
 
Want to have some fun, if you are a news person keep asking the Presidentual staff questions about the drone program, like how many is there and what do you do with them, and keep asking until you get a valid answer, and no comment is not s vslid answer.
 
The 99% transparency-factor has made national security transparent.
 
You know if there was no secrets, their would be no reason for some to get paid more for doing less work than you do.
