Experimental NASA jet reaches Mach 10 (http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/11/16/scramjet.delay/index.html)

Tuesday's flight was the last of three test flights in NASA's eight-year, $230 million Hyper-X program, designed to help develop a new generation of spacecraft that could fly into low Earth orbit at a fraction of the current cost.
Is there a thread already started? This looks very interesting. Is it to compete with the advancements made with the X-prize?
