Mach 10 Babiieee!! Posted by Hello

This is cool. NASA has built a jet engine that can do Mach 10. That 10 times the speed of sound. With jet engines!! There was a rocket engine boost but the SCRAM jet engies did sustain the Mach 9.8 speed. I think the old SR-71 Blackbird used the same type engines. Only the X-43's engines are more powerful.

Scramjets burn fuel in a stream of supersonic air compressed by the forward speed of the aircraft. Conventional jet engines draw in air and burn it with fuel so it expands in a combustion chamber. The hot air is then forced out the exhaust nozzle to produce thrust. Credit: NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center
