A Reflection

So this is a bit of an odd post for me I came across this Video the other day

And it made me kinda sad the SR71 still holds the records for highest flight and fastest manned plane some of the facts about this plane are phenomenal. The record is Mach 3.2 but one pilot claims to have hit Mach 3.5 whilst evading SAM missiles over Libya speaking of which it was fired upon over 4000 times by missiles but never once hit if fired upon it would just accelerate and the missiles couldn’t keep up flying at 80000 ft at over 2000 mph its pilot could lock onto a moving car and read the number plates the sensor suite was so sensitive that siting on the ground in broad daylight it could detect the light from the nearest 62 stars at full chat it could get from New York to London in under 1 hour 55 minutes. The plane required so much Titanium in its construction that the CIA had to create hundreds of false companies around the world so they could buy enough the main source of Titanium being the USSR even then over 80% of the Titanium supplied was rejected by Lockheed as not being of suitable quality.

So why does this make me sad this plane was designed in the 1950’s first flew in 1962 and retired from service in 1998 where the replacement where’s the forward progress why are we no longer pushing the boundaries of the possible.

This kinda got me thinking it’s not just the SR71 Concorde no longer flies the Space Shuttle is grounded and become a museum piece No body is actively trying for a manned mission to Mars. Sure electronically see there are advancements but it seems like as a species were losing the adventurous spirit that pushed boundaries and that makes me Sad
