HYPERSONIC TRANSPORTATION: GET TO ANYWHERE IN ONE HOUR.

Andrew Duggleby, the co-founder of Venus Aerospace, says it’s possible to reach anywhere on Earth in an hour. The company dedicated to hypersonic transport is working on the project (a space plane) and is making progress according to reports.

According to the company’s website, they’re building a cadre of aerospace professionals to create a reusable, cost-effective spaceplane.

Mentioning the required technology to make this possible Andrew Duggleby mentioned three things:
Improved engine efficiency
Innovative aircraft shape
Leading-edge cooling technology.

Hypersonic transportation involves creating a specially designed aircraft, which takes off from a spaceport and heads towards the edge of space. After getting to its predetermined altitude, the rocket engines fire up which propels the aircraft hypersonically.
