The Black Files Declassified
Hypersonics
Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  October 14, 2020

There is a top-secret aviation program funded by a mysterious money trail that could revolutionise flight and unleash a new lethal technology. The new and final frontier of speed is hypersonics - attaining Mach 5, nearly four thousand miles per hour. The engineering, technology and challenges are demanding and complex. But if this barrier is shattered, it would allow transport of individuals and/or payloads from any spot on the globe to any other location in just a few hours. More ominously, a few nations are working on hypersonic missiles, capable of reaching their target in minutes and completely unstoppable. Mike Baker delves into this fascinating black file.
