Before Neil Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the moon, he was a pilot for the North American X-15, an experimental hypersonic rocket-powered aircraft that took great risks to break speed barriers and reach the edge of outer space during NASA’s infancy.
Armstrong reached hypersonic speed three times in the X-15 and achieved a max altitude of 207,000 feet, shattering the perception for what was thought possible. X-15 is widely regarded as one of the most successful research programs in aviation history and directly contributed to space exploration.
The X-15 was a Hypergrowth moment for the future of aviation and space exploration. Our program is a springboard to reach new heights and unlock our greatest potential.
