Mach 5 air travel coming soon?

February 6, 2008

According to Reaction Engines it is! They’re a UK based company who have designed an eco-friendly airliner which could make the trip from London to Sydney in under five hours. They’ve received funding from the European Space Agency for their work under the project Long-Term Advanced Propulsion Concepts and Technologies.

The airliner is planned to carry 300 passengers at speeds of up to mach 5. Now that’s much more exciting and has much bigger repercussions for the travel industry than your latest web 2.0 fad 😉
