Kathmandu. China has surpassed Europe and the United States to develop technology that could reach 30 years ahead of those countries. China has begun building hypersonic tunnels to test future flying hypersonic aircraft. The aircraft will be tested at a speed of 23,000 miles per hour, or 37,013 kilometers per hour. Han Guilie, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said the JF-22 tunnel would be tested at 30 times the speed of sound.
According to a report in the South China Morning Post, researcher Guillie said in an online lecture, “With this research, China will be about 20 to 30 years ahead of other powers like Europe, America and the United States.” This new technology can create a superfast jet that can cover the distance from one part of the earth to another in less than 2 hours.
Simply put, this technological jet will take less than two hours to cover the distance between two places on Earth, no matter how far apart they may be. Flying straight, the plane can make three rounds of the earth in one hour. The diameter of the earth is 12 thousand 714 kilometers and the speed of this plane is 37 thousand 13 kilometers per hour which is 3 times the diameter of the earth.
With the development of this technology, the cost of spacecraft can be reduced by 90 percent, which will make space travel possible for the general public. According to Guillie, who works at the Institute of Mechanics, China’s Ipsonic Agency, the speed of a jet traveling at such a high speed can reach up to 10,000 degrees Celsius and break down air molecules and atoms.
“This air is no longer the air we breathe,” he said. The flying vehicle we are studying is like swimming in the mud. ‘The wind tunnel has helped China move forward with technology. According to Guillie, China is using chemical explosives to generate high-speed airflow instead of using mechanical compressors. The JF-22 burns fuel 100 million times faster than a regular gas stove and produces the same shockwave as the jet’s experience of hypervelography.
Named Lens 2, the most advanced hypersonic tunnel in the United States lasts up to 30 milliseconds. In comparison, the average flight of a JF-22 can reach 130 milliseconds. “Our research time is much longer than in other countries,” he said. So the model of the aircraft can be bigger than them and the research can be more advanced than them. It determines our leading position in the world. “
