Hi Mike been meaning to flag this one up with you for a while. Every time you put a link up I click on it and it just goes to a white page! Not sure if this is just me or is anybody else having trouble? Appears Bill has viewed it though.
Cheers

Talking about the Bloodhound project, let's hope it won't end this way... :roll:

Interested to see that Intel have pulled out. Wonder what that was all about.

lets all hope so. cant help thinking that this vehicle is so complex that it makes thrust ssc look comparitively simple. anyone who has read richard nobles book "Thrust" will know the problems they had with that. times and technology have moved on though, you have to give the team all the best :D :D :D

Wonder if it will all work like that in practice...
Hey, they're copying us! First they call their diary a 'diary' in proper English and not a dog-log or whatever stupid name others seem to have given such things of late and now they're getting proper musicians to do their music. Blokes with real instruments and such. They'll be advocating the abolition of bureaucracy next.

So that's about 750Hp from the F1 engine to drive the HTP pump and about 200Hp from the EJ200 gearbox to drive the fuel pumps. Think what you can do with 950Hp and it's all being used just to deliver fuel...

...and out of interest, with 47,000lb of propulsive thrust, ThrustSSC has nearly 10 times the power of Bluebird's Orpheus!
