Australia To Croatia In Just 90 Minutes?

A large number of travellers from Australia each year set off on the gruelling 20-plus hour flight to Croatia, but it may not be too long before getting to Europe in just 90 minutes is made possible.

Scientists from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Spain Sweden and Switzerland have been carrying out research for the Fast20XX (Future high-Altitude high-Speed Transport) project, which will see the SpaceLiner launch passengers in a space shuttle like journey, writes spacetravel.com.

The project has the support of the European Union and is envisaged to take a maximum of 50 passengers on each trip, using rocket engines. Breakfast on Bondi Beach in Sydney, followed by lunch on the Stradun in Dubrovnik may soon be a reality for some.
