BLOODHOUND SSC

The BLOODHOUND Project is an international education initiative focused around a 1000 mph World Land Speed Record attempt.

The BLOODHOUND Project is a global Engineering Adventure, using a 1,000mph World Land Speed Record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Bloodhound SSC is a British supersonic land vehicle currently in development. Its goal is to match or exceed 1,000 miles per hour (1,609 km/h) achieving a new world land speed record.[1] The pencil-shaped car, powered by a jet engine and a rocket engine is designed to reach 1,050 miles per hour (1,690 km/h).[2] It is being developed and built with the intention of breaking the land speed record by 33%, the largest ever margin.[3][4]

Runway testing of up to 200 miles per hour (320 km/h) was scheduled to take place in early 2016. Bloodhound SSC will then be tested on the Hakskeen Pan in the Mier area of the Northern Cape, South Africa where a track 12 miles (19 km) long, 2 miles (3.2 km) wide has been cleared.[5]

In July 2016, it was reported that Andy Green will attempt to break his own World Land Speed Record with Bloodhound (to 800 mph)[6]in October 2017.[7] In March 2017 this attempt was pushed back to summer 2018.[8] WIKI
