On April 14th 1981 the first Space Shuttle launched into orbit touched down on Rogers lakebed runway 23. Today aircraft research is still active at Edwards whith projects like the X-51 WaveRider scramjet with a maximum speed of Mach 7+ and several unmanned stealth combat air vehicles (X-45, X-46, X-47).
