Andy Green’s Diary – May 2017

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. After all, we are putting the world’s best military jet engine (from the Eurofighter Typhoon) plus a prototype hybrid rocket system (thanks to Nammo) into the most sophisticated Land Speed Record Car ever. Then we’re aiming to reach a cool 1000 mph. Looking at it this way, it’s a pretty compelling story!
