The designer claims that the nuclear-powered plane will fly at more than three times the speed of sound

Can we cross the Atlantic in an astonishing 80 minutes? The designer claims that the nuclear-powered plane will carry 170 passengers at more than three times the speed of sound

  • The Hyper Sting concept was designed by Spanish designer Oscar Viñals
  • He said it could fly 170 passengers at more than three times the speed of sound
  • The plane will be twice as fast as Concorde and much bigger
  • He believes this concept is possible but requires a technological advance first

Traveling from London to New York in 80 minutes could become a reality in the future with amazing ideas for a new nuclear-powered supersonic aircraft.

The Hyper Sting concept has been dreamed up by Spanish designer Oscar Vinales who said that in the coming years 170 passengers could fly at more than three times the speed of sound, or 2,486 miles per hour — nearly twice the speed of Concorde.

A “cold fusion reactor” is a theoretical concept for now, but he explained that this innovative system will enable Mach 3.5 capacity, which will power two jet engines and four next-generation hybrid jet engines.

The Hyper Sting would be much larger than the Concorde, with a length of 328 feet, which is 100 feet longer than the Concorde, and a wingspan of 169 feet, compared to the 85-foot Concorde.

Traveling from London to New York in 80 minutes could become a reality in the far future with amazing ideas for a new supersonic aircraft.

Mr Vinals explained: “The Concorde was a wonderful piece of machinery, a noble experience, but it made so much emissions into the environment, so much noise in our communities, that it was very expensive to operate.

A new era of supersonic flight may be around the corner, but there are challenges to overcome when it comes to flying at supersonic speed.

The Hyper Sting is a new concept for the supersonic commercial aircraft of the future.

The design name comes from the shape of the aircraft, as Mr. Vinals explained:

The design name comes from the shape of the aircraft, as explained by Mr. Vinals: “The fuselage will have a ‘big bite’ shape with a very sharp ‘nose’.

“Today, there are some projects for a new era of supersonic flights from various private and public initiatives, some of which are underway and could become a real concept in a few years.”

The name of the design comes from the shape of the aircraft, as explained by Mr. Vinals: “The fuselage will have a ‘big bite’ shape with a very sharp ‘nose’, which will have the function of controlling the forward airflow (pressure/speed), in order to redistribute it over the part central and above the wings.

While he believes his dream could become a reality, the Barcelona designer understands that first there must be some advances in technology.

He said, “Supersonic flights will return, but in this case because of some very innovative systems, such as the cold fusion reactor, the potential production date, it will be more than 2030 and the cost will not be cheap.”
