The Future of High-Speed Travel

Reaction Engine’s SABRE system is about to turn the air-travel industry on its head. With a promise to revolutionize air travel in the coming years, two in-the-works designs will not only take you from point A to point B in a fraction of the time you’d imagine, they’re planning to thrust you into outer space, too.

SABRE’s plan hinges on its ability to cool incoming air to unheard of levels by using a flash-cooling system to chill the incoming air to -150 degrees Celsius, which is more than enough to keep engines running clean and at full throttle. Cleaner engines mean that air travel could be optimized in ways like never before.

So far, the plan includes concepts for an LAPCAT A2 and the SKYLON C1, both of which would be designed to travel up to Mach 5 between major airports around the world. Which makes it completely possible to travel from NYC to Boston in three minutes flat, and to make the trip from Brussels to Sydney in four hours tops.

Futuristic travel is well on its way.
