The hypersonic suborbital spaceplane designed by European Space Agency (ESA) and Germany’s Aerospace Center will transport up to 50 passengers from Europe to Australia just in 90 minutes. The Hypersonic SpaceLiner is a part of the ESA’s FAST 20XX program and it is aimed to be in full operation by 2050. Martin Sippel, project coordinator for SpaceLiner at the German Aerospace Center, claims it’s a kind of second-generation space shuttle, but with a completely different task. With a rocket as its carrier, the commercial SpaceLiner would be launched into the Earth’s upper atmosphere to reach optimal speeds without disturbing regular air traffic, then slow down to regular airplane speeds before landing. It would be liquid oxygen and hydrogen powered, leaving only a trail of water vapor and hydrogen in the atmosphere. Designers are now working on finding the right shape for the futuristic vehicle and as soon as it will be able to withstand the heat created by hypersonic speeds, investors will be drawn. The future success of the project depends greatly upon people’s willingness to pay considerable amount for suborbital flights as part of their travels around the world.
