"The Fastest Man on Earth"Add to my shortlist
The Bloodhound Land Speed Record (LSR) team confirmed plans to challenge for the world land speed record using a zero-emissions rocket. Powered by concentrated hydrogen peroxide, the rocket will be used alongside the world's best jet-fighter engine when the Bloodhound LSR car attempts to reach speeds beyond 800mph in South Africa in 2021. Wing Commander Andy Green's team now set out to break the record again. Their mission statement is to create a unique, high-technology project and to share this engineering adventure with a global audience, inspiring the next generation by bringing science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life in the most exciting way possible.
