The Development of Hypersonic Flight
Man has always had an indisputable desire to go bigger, better, and faster. Once limited to the ground, human ancestors looked to the sky and imagined flight. Over many years the idea was pushed until man left the ground over 100 years ago. It was not long before scientific minds pushed the limits farther, and reached for the stars, sending a rocket to space only 30 years after engineers sent the first man-made object into space with the infamous V2 rocket. To this day, engineers and scientific bodies still push the limitations of flight building bigger, and faster vehicles- most recently with a new experimental rocket that will bring mankind one step closer to hypersonic flights.
