    If we’re going to get a Lennon clone, how about a Harrison clone too? After McCartney and Starr go, how about clones of them as well?

    Boy, cloning Beatles is like pulling teeth.

    The X-15 CAN’T fly from NY to London in 45 minutes because it burns all of its fuel in just a very few minutes (far less than 45), & glides back for a high speed landing.

    The x-15 rocket plane project was scrapped to make way for the clumsy space shuttle.

    The clones will still be their own people. The only thing will be their appearance. if it is even allowed to happen.

    Surely in 55 years, we’ve built something that goes faster than what the X-15 could do!

    Money out of my bank account.

    Are you sure you aren’t falling for that old “Would you like cash back?” trick. I fell for that a couple of times until I wised up and figured out they were giving me my own money and I was thanking them for it.

    I thought the USAF’s “Dyna-Soar” project was scrapped for the Space Shuttle…. or perhaps “Dyna-Soar” was shelved in leau of The Apollo missions.

    They need to quantify the X-15 fact as “declassified manned aircraft”. Rumours that I’ve heard is we (the public) still don’t know the top speed of the SR-71.

    And since they retired it, you know the government has something else that replaced it…

    Fat lot of good it would do us (well, SOME of us), since clones would naturally begin as newborns, not many of us will be around when they’re ‘born.’

    Exactly when did you fall off the turnip truck?

    I am now playing the Beatles’ “Tell Me Why” so I don’t have Taylor Swift, Neil Young, or the Backstreet Boys in my head.

    @Night-Gaunt49—-I don’t believe that the X-15 program was actually “scrapped” as such. I think it accomplished all project goals it was designed for, & since the project was complete, it came to a natural end & not cut off unfinished.

    Yep. It’s called Satellites. The SR-71 just wasn’t cost effective any more. Sure, it got the data on a moments notice, but within just a couple of hours, a satellite could be there doing a better job.
    That’s why it was scrapped. I suspect the new miniature, unmanned, shuttle clone is a replacement. Putting “temporary” satellites in orbit that can be directed much more quickly and more often, then brought back home, to replace satellites that can’t be moved as often (because of limitations of fuel)
