DARPA Can Launch Satellites Into Space From a Moving Airplane

29 Mar

My attitude toward the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency veers from horrified fascination to fascinated horror to just horror and then just fascination. And this is an example of the last emotional state: the agency has figured out a way—several ways, in fact—to send objects into low-earth orbit from an F-15.

The video presentation is here and it is epic, if you’re at all interested.

This plays into my theory that really important stuff is couched in the most boring terms possible. Sure, it’s a video of a corporate presentation, but it’s a corporate presentation about LAUNCHING ROCKETS OFF OF FIGHTER JETS.
