Picture this: You start your day at the Empire State Building in New York City, and by evening tea time, you're sipping Earl Grey in London. How's that for a jet-setter's dream come true?
Well, it might just be possible, thanks to NASA's (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) out-of-this-world ambitions!
And guess what? Their cosmic research suggests that there's a possibility for this speedy travel on roughly 50 well-established flight routes.
The United States and several other countries have rules against supersonic flights over land.
So, the study mainly looked at flights over the ocean, especially busy routes across the Pacific.
At the same time, NASA is tinkering with designs, like its experimental X-59 aircraft, which can zip through the skies at supersonic speeds with less noise.
NASA's Advanced Air Vehicle Program is gearing up for the next stage of high-speed travel research.
