I never fail to be struck by the power of BLOODHOUND to tell its science and technology story. Perhaps this should not be a surprise.
Jet fuel system
The BLOODHOUND Team are at Newquay Airport to test the Fuel Systems for the EJ200 Jet Engine - they need to simulate the G forces the jet fuel will face at 1000mph by tilting the lower chassis to an angle of 60 degrees. Find out how they got on in this episode of Cisco BLOODHOUND TV. Find out about the test and the partners involved.
A key milestone in the development of BLOODHOUND SSC as testing and development work recommences at the Aerohub, Newquay.
Work has been continuing apace at the BLOODHOUND Technical Centre over the last month, where the main focus for the Team has been preparing the lower chassis and fuel tanks for a jet fuel systems test in mid-December. We have also been working on the upper chassis - and there's another busy month ahead.
