Reaction Engines Hypersonic Travel at Five-Times Speed of Sound

Reaction Engines Hypersonic Engine: Travel at five-times the speed of sound.

Reaction Engines Sabre Engine innovation –
The air flowing through the engine can be cooled from +1000oC to –150oC in 10 msec enabling a hypersonic plane to travel at five-times the speed of sound.

The example applications
  • A plane that turns into a rocket for space travel
  • Travelling from Berlin to Australia in 4 hours (currently at 18 hours)
