This doesn't have anything to do with retro computers but with retro airplanes. The XB-70 was a hyper-sonic proposed in the 60s. It had a projected cruising speed of MACH 3, which is impressive even by today's standards. I remember as a kid I of having a model of this X plane. It was 60s cool if there ever was one. I got the below document from I'm not sure where. It's a 'what if' and some of the plans they had for the plane. Here's the NASA fact sheet on the plane. https://www.nasa.gov/centers/armstrong/news/FactSheets/FS-084-DFRC.html Attached is the 'what if' document of the plans they had for the XB-70 for a Minuteman Missile launcher, an SST passenger plane and even a cargo variant.

Greetings Atarians! Books on videogame history still keep coming and tend to be even more focused on specific topics. A recent (Jan 2016) example is the catalog accompanying the FILM AND GAMES. INTERACTIONS exhibition, which was organized by the German Deutsche Filmmuseum. This one presents reflections, interviews and scientific considerations regarding the intersections between film and games and is a worthy addition for a gamers library. (For details click HERE ) How retro-grade is this one? Naturally Tron, Tomb Raider and Wing Commander are touched more in-depth, whereas other "oldies" like E.T., Pac Man or SW: Empire Strikes Back are at least mentioned within certain contexts. For me FILM AND GAMES. INTERACTIONS is a worthy addition to my (scientific, historical) bookshelf on videogames. Check it out, if you are aiming for completion in this domain as well.
