X-43C, RS-84 Engine Among Casualties Of NASA Review
By Jefferson Morris
NASA's X-43C hypersonic demonstrator and RS-84 reusable engine program have been canceled following a review of 140 programs inherited by the agency's new Office of Exploration Systems.
The review, completed last week, assessed each program for its applicability to NASA's new space exploration goals (DAILY, March 18.)

Craig Steidle told lawmakers during a House Space and Aeronautics subcommittee hearing in Washington March 18.
