Coming Soon – A Flight From NYC To Japan In Only 90 Minutes (9 photos)
When the Concorde retired in 2003, supersonic travel became limited to jet fighter pilots and select individuals like Felix Baumgartner. But not for long! Soon, XCOR Aerospace is planning to bring back travel faster than the speed of sound when they launch the Lynx, a suborbital commercial spacecraft. The Lynx will take off and land like a conventional plane, but offer a cruising speed of Mach 3.5, 62 miles above the ground.
