This is the fastest thing ever built. And it was built in the early '60s. From titanium bought from the Soviets by the CIA!

For a fascinating and entertaining account of the story of the Lockheed SR71 Blackbird, I recommend Skunkworks by Ben R. Rich. It's a great story told with wit and humility and the sheer audacity of the thing was remarkable.
