Suborbital Passenger Jet Will Make London To New York In Two Hours

Back in the 1940s, Hitler’s Nazi had explored the possibility of sub-orbital flight to achieve tremendous range that would afford Germany to “bomb anywhere in the world.” Fast forward to 2017, or rather 2016, mankind is again exploring the possibility of cruising along the lower reaches of space, but this time, it is for a peaceful mission: air travel. Unlike the technology of the 40s, this space-going passenger jet of near future won’t look like an intercontinental ballistic missile; instead it will look more like a flying wing, like the iconic B-2 stealth bomber, with a bulge in the center where a “theater-like cabin,” complete with galleys and baggage area, can be found – well, at least that was what Juan Garcia Manislla’s concept supersonic jet, The Paradoxal, proposed.

Bold Hypersonic Concept Jets Will Fly From London To New York In 30 Mins

Technology has advanced leaps and bounds, but one thing mankind hasn’t progress quite as much is air travel’s speeds. The fact remains that, unless teleportation becomes a reality, air travel will remain the preferred and fastest mode of transport between cities and countries which still takes hours on ends. But could aircraft be made to go any faster? Well, as far as speed is concerned, companies like Spike Aerospace and Aerion Supersonic are working to trim the time required to fly from New York to London and vice versa to half. However, Charles Bombardier has bolder and more ambitious ideas. His non-profit technology group, Imaginactive has proposed jets that could make the same trip in just 30 minutes, or circle the globe in an hour.
