    The Boeing X is an unpiloted demonstration spaceplane that is intended to test future spaceflight technologies while in orbit and during atmospheric is a reusable robotic spacecraft based on the smaller XThe X began as a NASA project in , then was transferred to the US Department of Defense in The X had its first flight as a drop test in April at Edwards cturer: Boeing Defense, Space & Security. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system that was operated from to by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as part of the Space Shuttle official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for flight: Ap

    Dyna-Soar would fly at speeds (up to Mach 20) and altitudes (km) far beyond even the most advanced research aircraft of the day. The basic layout of Dyna-Soar (a steeply swept wing with a pointed nose and flat underside) was considered optimal for handling hypersonic flight, based on the understanding of supersonic flight at the time.

    Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara announced cancellation of the X Dyna Soar project at a news briefing at the Pentagon. McNamara stated that fiscal resources thereby saved would be channeled into broader research on the problems and potential value of manned military operations in space, chiefly the Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL.

Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. The Boeing X Dyna-Soar ("Dynamic Soarer") was a United States Air Force (USAF) program to develop a spaceplane that could be used for a variety of military missions, including aerial reconnaissance, bombing, space rescue, satellite maintenance, and as a space interceptor to sabotage enemy satellites.

As the Bush Administration moves ahead with initiatives aimed at bringing the U.S. military into the 21st century, the timely publication of Dyna-Soar: Hypersonic Strategic Weapons System takes an encyclopedic look back at an aircraft that could have changed the whole tenor of the Cold War space race and whose concept and modus operandi many once again take flight.

The Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) (also known as KH Dorian) was a never-flown part of the United States Air Force's human spaceflight program, a successor to the canceled Boeing X Dyna-Soar military reconnaissance space plane project.

The project was developed from early United States Air Force (USAF) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) concepts of crewed Crew: 2.

The book focuses on aircraft, but does include one space-related program that was cancelled in — the USAF/Boeing X Dyna-Soar manned spaceplane. Even though it was never built, the X was an innovative design that would have introduced game-changing technology.

I included it because of its potential impact on history. to cancellation of Dyna Soar, and was NOT a result of that cancellation. The ASSET program, discussed in Appendix A, sectionfalls into the same category further highlighting the recognition within the technical community of the high technical risk of Dyna Soar.

Moore, USAF Wright Air Development Division L 1 i 0 6 This conference has thus far been devoted to the presentation of results of generalized research in a broad field of lifting, manned, hypervelocity, and reentry vehicles.

For the rest of the conference, discussions will be focused on Dyna-Soar. The book mischaracterizes the MOL program’s cancellation. According to the author, MOL was over budget and behind schedule at a time when the Vietnam War was costing the United States military a huge amount of money, and this led to its cancellation.

But the MOL cancellation is more complex and interesting than that. The Manned Maneuvering Unit in Space. by Anne Millbrooke. In both book and movie the space vehicle is an atomic-powered rocketship; and Woody Woodpecker gives a delightful explanation of rocketry in the movie.

Even after the cancellation of Dyna-Soar, the Air Force retained military objectives for a space program. A $61, contract was signed by the Yerkes Observatory, University of Chicago, and the Air Force.

Gerard P. Kuiper, principal investigator, was to produce a new lunar photographic atlas. of lower thrust than the Saturn and intended for use in the Dyna-Soar program], and on the ground that by the cancellation the Defense Department will be. The X Dyna-Soar project of the late s and early s was to be the next manned research vehicle beyond the X, and was intended to put a rocket propelled space plane into orbit.

Like the X, it would be able to glide to earth under pilot control, and land at an airport. It. Diefenbacher and his cancellation of the Canadian defense effort. Cancellation of the contract; subsequent reduction of staff by 33%. RCA involvement in the Atlas program.
