More Bad News: Sweet-Ass "Blackstar" Space-Plane Mothballed

It officially never existed, and now maybe it officially really, honestly, I-shit-you-not doesn't exist.

Too bad. A two-stage plane capable of reaching orbit, for use in deploying weather balloons, communications satellites, experimental orbital pods to determine how spiders make webs in zero gravity, singers from 'N Sync into spacewalks, and maybe -- possibly, if they have room in the cargo bay -- totally wicked-ass space-based weapons.

This isn't the America I grew up in. I suddenly feel so, so... French.

Thanks to Nanman.

Update: Dave at Garfield-Ridge says there really never was such a plane at all; it was wishful thinking/cover-whoring from Aviation Weekly geeks.

Okay, I'll accept that. The plane never really existed at all.

But the question then becomes:

Why the eff didn't ever really exist?

What the hell are we paying taxes for, if not to create technological-overkill methods of wiping out swarthy foreign folk?

I feel worse than French right now. I feel... Swedish.
