    NASA has been recognized by Guinness World Records for setting a world speed record of Mach 6.83 (nearly 5,000 mph) ;P in its hypersonic X-43A scramjet. The flight for the unpiloted craft on March 27 lasted just 11 seconds over the Pacific Ocean. It was launched from a B-52 and boosted by a Pegasus rocket.
