The UK Space Agency has announced the creation of a "space plane". It will allegedly be able to cover the distance between New York and London in just one hour and is expected to take to the skies by the 2030s. According to the agency, these insanely fast passenger airliners will fly at Mach 5,4 (6 km per hour), which is just very fast. Traveller365.

At the British Space Conference in Wales, the Director General of the UK Space Agency revealed that this high-tech aircraft (or shuttle rocket) will be equipped with a hypersonic engine. The aircraft will be able to reach the speed of sound in five minutes, this technology will significantly speed up air travel in the future.

The aircraft uses a SABER (Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine) engine and is equipped with a sophisticated cooling system far superior to those found on modern aircraft. SABER is a hybrid rocket and aircraft engine powered by a combination of oxygen and hydrogen. According to scientists, traveling on aircraft with such engines is more environmentally friendly and cheaper than current air travel.

Little is known about the design of the aircraft itself. The company aims to create a vehicle that is fuel efficient, something like a jet engine with rocket power. The developers of the hypersonic aircraft are inspired by the technologies of Rolls-Royce, BAR Systems, Boeing and want to create an aircraft that can superfast deliver people or cargo to and from space at low cost.
