Anyone who analyzes and evaluates the world today will easily come to the conclusion that in the future everything will be very different. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to travel around the world in just 3 hours? No, it is no longer an Elon Musk idea, nor a solution with a 5G network.
According to recent information, by 2025 China will have a hypersonic plane capable of flying around the world in three hours.
The hypersonic plane is capable of reaching speeds of 4,000 km per hour
The increasingly famous war in the area of fast transport between Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos has a new participant: China. The Asian country has important ambitions to lead the space tourism industry and, for that, it is creating a hypersonic plane that can fly around the world in just three hours.
According to data from China, in 2025 you will be able to board the plane that is capable of reaching speeds of 4,000 km per hour. According to the newspaper El Economista, a plane with these characteristics can make a trip between London and New York in just 1 hour.
Space Transportation, the Chinese company based in Beijing and responsible for the project, intends to commercialize this passenger transport vehicle. However, anyone who wants to enjoy hypersonic speeds will have to wait until 2025.
Tianxing I, as the “ship” was called, will travel twice as fast as the famous Concorde. According to the company, “what we are developing is a rocket with wings that performs point-to-point transport at high speed”.
Space Transportation is also working on an orbital version of the space plane, which could launch in 2030 and take passengers into space so they can go around Earth’s orbit. It is also known that the Government is working on its own supersonic plane.
