New Hypersonic Plane Could Fly Between New York and Tokyo in 90 MINUTES


New Hypersonic Plane Could Fly Between New York and Tokyo in 90 MINUTES
A California-based flight firm says its jet can take you from the the Big Apple to the Orient in half the amount of time it would take to watch Titanic. XCOR Aerospace claims its Lynx spacecraft can travel at a speed of more than 2,500 mph - and dozens of miles above the earth - before safely landing at an airport.  It would be the fastest commercial flight since the days of the Concorde. Taking flight: XCOR Aerospace claims its Lynx spacecraft can travel at a speed of more than 2,500 mph - and dozens of miles above the earth - before safely landing at an airport Propelled: The Lynx's main engines run with the help of flight weight rocket piston pump hardware and liquid oxygen Business Insider reported that work continues on a prototype of the jet, but portions of the aircraft have been released to the public, including testing of Lynx's supersonic engine last week. The Lynx's main engines run with the help of flight weight rocket piston pump hardware and liquid oxygen.     When finished and successfully tested, the company will begin marketing the world’s quickest flights on a jet that takes off and lands like the 747s of today.   XCOR COO Andrew Nelson told the Huffington Post that flights between Tokyo and New York are likely to be available within the next 20 years.   Design: When completed and successfully tested, XCOR will begin marketing the world¿s quickest flights on a jet that takes off and lands like the 747s of today   Flight plan: The jets will take off and soar high above Earth and drop back down at supersonic speeds before landing at any commercial airport   XCOR is one of several companies developing suborbital vehicles for commercial space tourist flights.   Lynx, a two-seater craft, will be able to take off and land at standard airports and unlike other spacecraft it will be a reusable space plane, capable of making up to four trips per day.   It will take a pilot and passenger to the edge of space for a few minutes of microgravity and the ultimate view of the Earth.   XCOR anticipates beginning space tourist flights on the new plane in 2013, with tickets selling for $95,000 per person.   Cold feet: The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was first offered by former NASA astronaut Richard Searfoss, left, to Big Bang Theory co-star Simon Helberg, right, who refused   In July, a lucky fan of the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory won a trip on the Lynx during the San Diego Comic-Con.   The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was first offered on stage by former NASA astronaut Richard Searfoss to Big Bang co-star Simon Helberg, who refused.   The prize was won by Mercedes Becerra, of Paso Robles, California.   Winner: Mercedes Becerra, pictured far right with the cast of The Big Bang Theory, won Helberg's ticket aboard the Lynx
