Secret space plane? Hold on there a minute!

The Space Review has a skeptical take on the Blackstar story from Aviation Week & Space Technology.

Reports of top secret aircraft have surfaced before, such as a story about an atomic powered Soviet bomber in the late 1950s. Some of the stories seemed convincing, but lost credibility under scrutiny.

Does the Blackstar story hold up? Read the story and make up your own mind.

Like before, the picture above is of the XB-70A, which I found on the NASA Image eXchange(NIX)....NOT the secret plane.
