Hypersonic Flight
00:02
A flight travels at least speed of Mach 5
00:05
Mach 5 is five times the speed of sound (~3836 miles per second or 6174 kilometers per second)
00:09
It is very hard to make an aircraft fly super fast.

Reaching Hypersonic Speeds
00:13
Method 1: Space Shuttle
00:13
Method 2: Scramjet
00:17
Space Shuttle Method
00:17
Hypersonic glide vehicle is used
00:20
Hypersonic glide vehicles put the airplane in space
00:22
An aircraft can enter the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds from space
00:27
Scramjet Method
00:29
First achieves speed of sound (also known as Mach 1)
00:32
1. Air is entered in a chamber
00:33
2. The air is kindled
00:35
3. The hot air is used to increase the speed to hypersonic speeds
00:39
Improved Efficiency
00:41
Hypersonic flight could increase efficiency
00:50
9 hrs
00:52
3.5 hrs
00:54
Less travel times means more discussing time which means decisions are made faster
01:01
Improving Wellbeing
01:03
Many people would have better mental health
01:13
People would be well connected
01:24
Saving Lives
01:29
4 to 6 hrs
01:34
Organs can be transported faster
01:39
The military could prevent war
