From New York to London in 80 minutes – this hypersonic plane is set to revolutionize travel.
At least when it comes to the Spanish designer Oscar Viñals.
170 passengers are to travel at a speed of around 4000 km/h.
However, implementation is currently unlikely.
Because the concept, if it ever becomes reality, is still a dream of the future – because the necessary technologies have yet to be invented.
Among other things, the cold fusion, which should serve as the drive for the project. So far, however, this has been a theoretical consideration for generating energy through a controlled core meltdown at room temperature.
The US Department of Energy rates the realization of this technology as wishful thinking.
So the dream of this 100-meter hypersonic aircraft remains just a futuristic concept for the time being.
