2249 GMT (5:49 p.m. EST)

SCRUB! The clock has expired on today's opportunity to launch NASA's X-43A hypersonic research craft off the California coast. Delays in readying the vehicle for takeoff prevented the B-52 mothership from getting airborne to support the air-launch by the close of the window at 0000 GMT (7 p.m. EST; 4 p.m. EST). The range could not extend the window.

NASA plans to try again tomorrow.

okay let's examine this thing: we have here exhibit A, an experimental vehicle in which we hope to go mach 10. inside the cockpit we have secured exhibit B, a fully-trained and bladder-drained test pilot of the highest order. now, all we have to do is take the whole mess upstairs and pull one lever, releasing the vehicle from its mother ship. okay this could require specific personnel, arguably trained to pull a lever but not land an airplane, right? seconds later the engine lights up and if everything goes as planned, it should zip across the entire death of valley and clear the las of vegas in about 3 minutes. so what's the hangup? that silly thing might be back before any of you return from the airport? it's not like we're talking about a blasted career here!

There is no pilot. A guy on the ground guides it in a circle with a string. Justa woffin.Talcon said it has no pilot.
