In case you haven't heard, millennials are required to love travel and instant gratification. But unfortunately for me and the rest of my avocado-loving generation, the two are not synonymous. That's about to change, however, thanks to a new, insanely fast passenger aircraft.
The UK Space Agency is developing a plane that will travel between New York and London in one hour and it's expected to hit the skies by the 2030s. According to CEO Graham Turnock, who announced the news at Tuesday's Space Conference in Wales, the jet will fly at Mach 5.4, which in human speak, means really fast. These speed capabilities will change air travel elsewhere, too. For those traveling between the UK and Australia, the exhausting 20-hour trip may soon be a quick 4-hour jaunt.
