    Hypersonic plane could fly Sydney to London in 49 minutes

    The unmanned, arrowhead-shaped aircraft, dubbed Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2, will test new technology that would provide the US Pentagon a lightning-fast vehicle capable of delivering a military strike anywhere in the world in under an hour.

    In any military sense, speed is a key factor. It is a good thing that we can get there faster.
