The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), specifically a Naval Research Laboratory-funded project, has unveiled interesting plans for a new morphing hypersonic engine, reports the University of Central Florida (UCF). If workable, the new engine, according to the NRL, could lead to ultra-fast commercial and space travel. The research project, led by a UCF researcher, could theoretically allow air travel at Mach 6 to 17 speeds. That would be fast enough to travel coast-to-coast across the continental United States in less than 30 minutes.\
