Tämä juttu oli NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC-lehdessä OCT/2009.
Quick, what´s faster than a speeding bullet and isn´t named Superman ? The answer is
the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car, or soon will be. Now being built in England, the jet-and-
rocket powered ride is designed to go, go, go 1050 miles an hour. If it succeeds, it´ll blast
past the current land speed record of 763 miles an hour, set in 1997 by Andy Green in the
jet-propelled Thrust SSC.........
SIX SUPERSONIC STEPS (näin auton nopeus ajoittuu):
Autossa on sekä suihkumoottori että hybridi rakettimoottori.
1) Driver fires jet engine, getting car to 350 mph in just 25 seconds
2) Hybrid rocket engine ignites and adds thrust pushing car to 1000 mph
3) After top speed of 1050 mph is reached, rocket thrust stops
4)Jet engine stops
5) Driver deploys air brakes and if needed, parachutes
6) After car drops below 200 mph, hydraulic disc brakes bring it to full stop
