Aerodynamics slipstream and drag

  1. May 29, 2017 #1
    Hi there people, I am Leroy Leon, a film maker and playwright in Nigeria, and I am writing some science fiction films and I need answers with questions on Aerodynamics, slipstream and drag. So, my question is, if I want to create a land vehicle that can travel at hypersonic speeds, the slipstream will most likely cause a lot of damage, because papers, electric poles, and even people can get pulled in by the slipstream. How do I shape the vehicle to reduce draft and at the same time increase speed?
