You’ll soon be able to travel from Australia to London through space in 2 hours

An ambitious plan to fly travellers across the world via space would see the flight time between the UK and Australia drop to a mere two hours. The flights would enter space for a period of time before descending back into the Earth’s orbit – slashing a good 20 hours of flying time in the process.To make the vision a reality, aviation experts at the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) are hard at work, studying how passengers would cope with suborbital long-haul trips. According to The Times, the CAA has found that most people are able to cope with the G-forces of a suborbital space flight. They concluded that some could experience ‘physiological responses’ but added that these would ‘likely be benign for most passengers’.The CAA believe that they will become an affordable method of transport in the next decade.
