Announcing the "publication" of the X-33 History Project website.

The X-33 is an experimental, single-stage-to-orbit technology demonstrator,
reusable launch vehicle being designed, constructed, and tested by NASA and
Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works in collaboration through a Cooperative Agreement.

The goal of the program is to yield proven technologies that later can be
used by Lockheed Martin in the construction and operation of a fleet of
commercial single-stage-to-orbit reusable launch vehicles to be called

The X-33 History Project is documenting the development of the X-33 through
a series of efforts, including the collection and organization of relevant
documents and other materials into an archive, the undertaking of a series
of oral history interviews, and the writing of a monograph and a formal
project history for the NASA History Series. In addition, a number of
historical fact sheets, a chronology of key events, and several popular
media and scholarly articles will result from the X-33 History Project.

Currently, the X-33 History Project maintains a website at the following URL:
