  • About the X-15 Rocket Plane:

    In a joint project between NASA and the United States Air Force, the X-15 program was intended to provide high speed flight research. Much of this research was used in the design of both modern-day fighter jets and by the American space program in building its spacecraft. Data collected helped NASA build better launch vehicles in programs ranging from Mercury to the Space Shuttle.

    The X-15 project lasted nearly ten years. In this time, 199 flight missions were conducted. Due to the high fuel consumption during the test flights, the X-15 was launched from a “mothership”, which was a B-52. The rocket plane deployed when the B-52 reached 500 mph and the X-15 burned its engines for 80-120 seconds, propelling the craft to extremely high speeds and altitudes. The X-15 holds the unofficial records for both speed and altitude: 4,520 mph (Mach 6.7) and 354,200 feet.

    • Crew: 1
    • Engine: Thiokol XLR-99 throttleable rocket
