London to New York in 11 minutes
NEW DELHI: Charles Bombardier, the man behind the concept aircraft Skreemr which could travel at Mach 10, has now unveiled the Antipode, a hypersonic jet that he claims will cover the distance between London and New York in a mind-boggling 11 minutes.
Bombardier, who is affiliated with the Canadian aircraft company Bombardier Inc, says the Antipode can reach Mach 24, twice the speed of the Skreemr and 12 times faster than the Concorde. In theory, he claims it can carry 10 people for a distance of up to 20,000km in less than an hour.
Last year, the Canadian engineer designed the Skreemr, a four-winged scramjet that he claimed could carry 75 passengers at speeds of up to Mach 10.
One Mach averages 1195km/hour, a speed equal to that of sound. An aircraft flying at Mach 2 is flying at twice the speed of sound, in the air.
It will take longer to reach airport and stand in the security line than to tye flight time. Airline will also save money in prociding food and drinks to customers as hardly uou can eat anything in 11 minutes
GOOD , BUT HOW CAN EVERY PASSENGER BEAR G-FORCE THAT COULD BE MORE THAN 20 G , IN 2 MACK G-FORCE REACHED AT 9 G
Unbelievable speed but dangerous to run Flights at a speed of 25000 km/hour.
Mind blogging, The power of science, I am eagerly waiting when I will hear that we having drugs to control your life and to be immortal..
In Hyderabad city, reaching the air port even from the heart of the city takes not less than 1 hour.
It might take time before the concept of aircraft Skreemr which could travel at Mach 10, becomes a reality … but it will be quite dangerous for the technology to master such a high speed which likely to be too expensive too….
Great Speed…. Hope it becomes available for passenger air crafts and in reasonable cost..
It remains to be seen if this can be economically viable. As mentioned in the article, it could be used by the ultra rich and for military purposes
Hope the technology is nature friendly and not add problems to already in mess the climate due to global warming.
Amazing news. All the best to Charles.
