Sydney to London in five hours in hypersonic plane : ““It sounds incredible by today’s standards but I don’t see why future generations can’t make day trips to Australasia.””
It’ll certainly break barriers and change our whole way of living if people can travel between hemispheres in 5 hours. It means we can easily reach each other to do business, spend time. It would mean we’d be speaking more languages, enjoying more and different food. It would make our world much closer and given how well the internet has got people to cross cultural divides, imagine how much better it will be when we can literally see each other. It could be country boundaries will be less important. We’d start to become earthlings. It is going to be 25 years…toooo far away! I want it now!
