That’s right, I spelled airplane like a pretentious British school marm. Why? Because this is America, and I CAN.
Speaking of America, (how do you like THAT for a segue?) Canadian engineer Charles Bombardier has created a concept plane that can travel up to MACH 24 (WHAT?! How does that even work? ::shrugs:: I dunno). But that crazy Canadian loon along with Lunatics Koncepts (how apropos) founder Abhishek Roy have collaborated to create the Antipode, a supersonic plane that should be able to take you from New York to London in 11 minutes.
How does it work? I dunno, but here’s the link with pretty pictures and smart words that should make you understand good.
