Hypersonic jet: Across the pond in two hours

Faith involves an ability to foresee the future.  Down the road, truth can become stranger than even science fiction.

A hypersonic jet has been designed that can one day shuttle New Yorkers to London in about two hours.  Its blueprint deviates from the “tube-and-wing” structure of current planes, somewhat resembling that of a flying saucer.

The Paradoxal will initially climb to Mach 3 (at 60,000 feet).  At that point, “liquid oxygen” would help “push it at supersonic speeds up to an altitude of 40 miles.”  Passengers could then experience a taste of space travel, including weightlessness and glimpses of stars.
