Alan Bond: Aviation Breakthrough = Travel to Anywhere on Earth within 4 hours

How EXCITING to be ALIVE in these INNOVATIVE times!

Alan Bond talks about the heat exchanger
testing program, and its impact on future
of air and space travel.

We meet up with him during a test of a
pre-cooler, a device which cools the air
entering a high-speed engine, which will
enable propulsion systems to stay cool
enough to keep motoring at speeds of
Mach 5.

“We’re looking at a revolution in transportation
that is equivalent to the jet engine, and access
to space – access to anywhere in the world in
four hours…

“Once you’ve got access to space on that basis,
that’s the stepping stone to anywhere in the
universe – a very exciting future for the human
race.”
