Beijing, Crazy, and Future: Hypersonic Jet Could Take You From Beijing to NYC in Just Two Hours @balleralert Hypersonic Jet Could Take You From Beijing to NYC in Just Two Hours-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A group of scientists in China are now looking to build a hypersonic plane that would reportedly make trips from Beijing to New York City, only two hours long instead of the normal almost 14-hour flight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ To shorten the length of the trip, the plane would have to travel at more than 5 times the speed of sound. According to Newsweek, scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences are the ones responsible for the new aircraft design, which has been dubbed ‘I-plane’. They revealed details about the hypersonic jet in a paper published in the journal Physics, Mechanics, & Astronomy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While the project is only in the beginning stages, the authors have already begun testing a smaller version of the jet in a wind tunnel. Through testing, they found that the jet was able to hit high speeds without experiencing any oppositional force. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “It’s a crazy design, but somehow they’ve managed to make it work,” said one Chinese aircraft designer, who currently works on military research projects, to the South China Morning Post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He also mentioned that the new design is connected to the country’s hope to develop new strategic weapons before the United States. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “This will require original rather than knock-off designs,” he told the publication. “It could lead to a huge step forward in hypersonic technology.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In the United States, similar aircrafts have also been in the works. In January, Boeing showcased their hypersonic vehicle design that could “pave the way for a future high-speed strike,” according to Aviation Week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you think about this new creation?
