The BBC has reported on a supposed nuclear-powered airliner that would fly three times the speed of sound. http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20160713-could-this-be-the-first-nuclear-powered-airliner From the article: The first sentence of this article already makes me skeptical. It runs on "nuclear fusion." Needless to say, this sounds insane already from the start. How would this even be realistically achieved for an airliner? Also, why would you ever want to fly on an aircraft that could potentially go three times the speed of sound? A scientist (Dr. Phil Mason) has debunked this with more info; however, there is strong language for those sensitive to it. What are your thoughts on this article?
