The X-15 set speed and altitude records in the early 1960s, reaching the edge of deep space and returning with important information utilized in aircraft and spacecraft style. As of 2011, it holds the official world record for the fastest speed ever reached by a manned rocket-powered aircraft. During the X-15 program, 13 of the flights(by 8 pilots)satisfied the USAF spaceflight requirements by exceeding the altitude of 80 km thus certifying the pilots for astronaut status. The USAF pilots gotten approved for USAF astronaut wings, while the civilian pilots were later on granted NASA astronaut wings. Of all the X-15 missions, two flights(by
the exact same pilot)qualified as space flights per the global(Fédération Aéronautique Internationale) meaning of a spaceflight by going beyond 100 kilometers (62.1 mi, 328,084 feet)in altitude.
