Hyper-XGood news moves fast

One day, maybe 20 to 30 years from now, there well could be reusable space, military and commercial vehicles powered by scramjet technology.

They’d be much smaller, simpler and more affordable than today’s rocket-powered vehicles. These hypersonic air-breathing vehicles would travel at speeds between Mach 5 and Mach 10—five to 10 times the speed of sound. A commercial airplane with scramjets would be able to fly from Seattle to Tokyo in a little more than an hour.
