The Skreemr supersonic jet concept could be the passenger airliner of the future, making the Atlantic seem more like a lake than an ocean. If this wild creation ever gets off the drawing board, that is.
Designer Charles Bombardier and concept rendering creator Ray Mattison envision a jet that is launched from a magnetic railgun at speeds close to Mach 4. The Skreemr would then ignite liquid oxygen or kerosene rockets to increase its altitude and speed until it was traveling fast enough to fire up a scramjet engine. The scramjet engine then would use the incredible speed of the craft to compress incoming air for engine combustion, burning hydrogen and compressed oxygen to accelerate to an unbelievable Mach 10, or 7,673 miles per hour. (Scramjet technology is currently being tested by United States' and Chinese military organizations.)

Possibly it will incorporate some form of newfangled meta material in to her skin that does not conduct heat or at least at a greatly reduced rate.
