In the very near future it may be possible to fly from New York to London in just under 30 minutes and the only catch is China is gonna be the one tearing the tickets:
China is building a 12,000mph hypersonic plane that will be able to take 10 passengers to anywhere in the world within an hour.
The 148ft (45 metre) long plane is nearly a third larger than a Boeing 737 and features delta wings similar to Concorde, but with the tips pointed up.
Officials aim to have a fleet of the aircrafts by the end of 2035 and expand the planes to carry 100 passengers by 2045 — although their purpose has not yet been made clear.
Communist China continues to aggressively push the boundaries of technology.
Xi Jinping seems dead-set on worldwide dominance and we better not ignore that for a second.
