SUMMARY: NASA's X-43A prototype has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's fastest air-breathing aircraft. The unpiloted aircraft made an experimental flight earlier this year, and reached Mach 6.83, or 8,000 kph (5,000 mph) over the Pacific Ocean. The record will go into the 2006 edition of the book; however, NASA expects to have broken this record by the time the book goes to print. The X-43A is expected to make another flight this October, and if all goes well, it'll reach Mach 10.
