Michiel Mol and airline KLM are joining forces to develop a 13,750mph passenger spacecraft.
With plans to begin operations within 15 to 20 years, the flights would be so fast that they would facilitate travel around the world in less than two hours. "'I think there will [be] millions of people who would prefer to be in Sydney in a little more than one and a half hours rather than 24 hours," said Mol who likens the flights to those of Concorde before its retirement in 2003.
A Formula One motor racing tycoon has teamed up with an airline to develop a spaceship that could mean every city on the planet is just two hours away. Imagine Sydney and Tokyo becoming short-haul destinations as passengers jet on a spaceship travelling at 13,750 mph.
