Australia launches scramjet

A big step forward in ramjet-powered flight was taken yesterday when scientists successfully launched a scramjet-powered rocket. A ramjet rocket has no moving parts, and it uses the speed of the jet itself to compress air into the engine and uses it to ignite hydrogen.

NASA is also developing a scramjet-based jet but its last test failed. They might try again soon though.
