When the Concorde retired in 2003 supersonic travel became limited to the likes of jet fighter pilots and Felix Baumgartner. But not for long! XCOR Aerospace will bring back travel faster than the speed of sound when they launch the Lynx, a suborbital commercial spacecraft, which will take off and land like a conventional plane, but offer a cruising speed of Mach 3.5, 62 miles above the ground.
The first test flights will take place in early 2013 in New Mexico and although the design is not final yet below you can look at the craft that could make point to point travel in space a reality, and send passengers from New York to Tokyo in an hour and a half.
