Chinese team test jet engine ‘able to reach anywhere on Earth within 2 hours’
Chinese scientists have built what they claim is a revolutionary plane engine for Mach 16 flight. An aircraft powered by the engine could reach anywhere in the world within two hours, they said.
- Prototype flown in hypersonic wind tunnel simulating flight conditions at nine times the speed of sound
- The ‘sodramjet’ engine could offer the biggest hope so far of commercial flight reaching hypersonic speed, the scientists say
That would be like asking what's better, a dragster or a family four wheel drive - they're each good at different things.Which is more advanced, TRRE or sodramjet?
