Designed by German aerospace agency The DLR Institute of Space Systems, the Space Liner would travel up to 13,300km/h, which would take passengers from Sydney to Europe in 90 minutes.

Weekend trips between Sydney and Europe would become a possibility.

The craft works by blasting its way into the Earth’s stratosphere, where it can reach speeds of up to 20 times the speed of sound in less than ten minutes.

Fuel system will be eco-friendly. Liquid rocket engines that give the craft speed, are fuelled by cryogenic liquid oxygen and hydrogen. That means that only water vapour and hydrogen will be released into the atmosphere.

Don’t get too excited. We’re not expected to be taking this mode of transport until 2050.
