Experimental Scramjet Reaches Mach 10
Imagine traveling halfway around the world in under two hours. That is the promise of scramjet technology that is being tested in Australia. The scramjet is simple in principle with few or no moving parts. Scientists, jointly testing the scramjet, from Australia's defense Science and Technology Organization and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced a successful test of a scramjet engine on June 15, 2007 that reached Mach 10.
Implications - Scientists from Australia's defense Science and Technology Organization get together in an unlikely collaboration with the guys at DARPA. The collab successfully flew the brand new Scramjet rocket which went 10 times the speed of sound. Now that is certainly one fast rocket.
