Re: Dear AC

Travelling in a motor vehicle at 100 mph over land is useful and practical, within the limits of engineering. As for 1000 mph? Not so much.

I could only imagine those kinds of speeds being realistic in a semi-evacuated tube/tunnel arrangement like the Hyperloop concept. As such, even the data gathered during Bloodhound's 1000 mph run won't be of relevance because the aerodynamics will be completely different.
