Chinese team test jet engine ‘able to reach anywhere on Earth within 2 hours’

제출됨
 
Scientists in China claim to have built a hypersonic jet engine—called "sodramjet"—that can fly at 16 times the speed of sound. This means that an aircraft kitted out with such engines could fly anywhere in the world in two hours, according to the scientists. (interestingengineering.com) 기타...

Let's see 24, 900 miles in circumference, 2 hours,
so around 12,500 miles per hour.
Oh yeah - THAT is surely practical!

Only if they have stolen it from someone else, and if anyone else had one the world would know it. There are two countries with aerospace technology capability to do such a thing, and China is not one of them

I wouldn't be so sure of that. They copy, but they also innovate, so I have no doubt that whatever engine they claim to have is theirs, and was developed in China.
