X-15 contrail after launch, 1962.The X-15 rocket-powered aircraft begins its climb after launched from a B-52 aircraft. The X-15 was a rocket powered aircraft was a missile-shaped vehicle developed to provide in-flight information and data on aerodynamics, structures, flight controls, and the physiological aspects of high-speed, high-altitude flight. A follow-on program used the aircraft as a testbed to carry various scientific experiments beyond the Earth’s atmosphere on a repeated basis.The X-15 was flown from June 1959 to Oct. 1968 and set the world’s unofficial speed and altitude records of 4,520 mph (Mach 6.7) and 354,200 ft in a program to investigate all aspects of manned hypersonic flight. Information gained from the program contributed to the development of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo manned spaceflight programs, and also the Space Shuttle program.The X-15s made a total of 199 flights, and were manufactured by North American Aviation.
