Travelling the world is a dream nurtured by a lot of us. But not of all us can actually travel―either due to lack of money or due to lack of time or even both at times. But then, what if we tell you that there will soon be a mode of transport that will help you overcome both these things?
Surprised? Well, even I had a wide-eyed moment to learn that the human race is heading toward a generation that would be able to fly from New Delhi to Tokyo in 30 minutes and from New York to Shanghai in 39 minutes.
I am in no way kidding here, and more so because I take travel as seriously as you do. Okay, enough of playing around the bushes. Not too long ago, Elon Musk, the billionaire who runs the company SpaceX, has announced that very soon the residents of planet earth will be boarding rockets to travel from one destination to another.
Named the BFR, this rocket would be able to travel at a top speed of 27,000 miles per hour and would be able to cover any destination in less than an hour. What’s even better is that the tickets would cost you just as much as any economy class fare of air travel. Musk confirmed this by writing on Instagram, “Cost per seat should be about the same as full fare economy in an aircraft”.
Musk said that the BFR rockets would have the capacity of holding 850 passengers at a time.
Honestly, I am sure that you are excited to travel in the upcoming BFR as I am. But then, all we can do now is sit tight and enjoy the animated representation of the BFR released by SpaceX at the moment. And well, dream on.
