  Cover of Road to Mach 10: Lessons Learned from the X-43A Flight Research Program
+ Road to Mach 10: Lessons Learned from the X-43A Flight Research Program
This first, full-length history of the X-43 project, which achieved the first in-flight testing of a scramjet engine, illustrates how groundbreaking technology unfolds. It details the development of the scramjet over the last half-century, providing the reader with an understanding of how external factors influence a new technology. Published in 2008.
  Cover of book entitled From Archangel to Senior Crown: Design and Development of the Blackbird
+ From Archangel to Senior Crown: Design and Development of the Blackbird
NASA historian Peter Merlin addresses the Lockheed Blackbirds (the A-12, YF-12, M-21, D-21, and SR-71) and NASA's role in using the aircraft as a flying laboratory to collect data on materials, structures, loads, heating, aerodynamics and performance for high-speed aircraft. Published in 2008.
  Cover of X-15 book
+ X-15: Extending the Frontiers of Flight
This history of the design and achievements of the high-speed, 1950s-era X-15 airplane includes selected biographies, flight logs and physical characteristics of the airplane. An excerpt from the book's back jacket: "Neil Armstrong, amongst others, has called the X-15 'the most successful research airplane in history.' That might be stretching a point, but it was certainly the most successful of the highspeed X-planes." Published in 2007.
