Work on the record-breaking Bloodhound SSC world land speed record car has been going on for years now and about two years out from its attempted record run, pilot Andy Green has revealed that the entire venture will be streamed live on the internet!
No less than 16 cameras will adorn the Bloodhound both inside the cramped cockpit and outside ensuring every moment of the hopefully successful run is captured perfectly. What’s more, Andy Green’s radio conversations will also be included in the coverage. Because this will literally be a once-in-a-lifetime event for many, numerous companies are expected to line-up to provide the coverage with multiple companies expected to play a role such as Cisco. Additionally Google, Microsoft and YouTube are all likely candidates to broadcast the event.
Andy Green is the world’s fastest man on land after his twin-jet powered Thrust SSC broke the sound barrier in 1997 after hitting 763mph, but his latest project, the Bloodhound SSC is set to destroy that record with its aim of hitting 1,050mph.
To see just how impressive this jet car is set to be, all you have to know is that it uses a 750hp Cosworth Formula One engine just to supply fuel to the hybrid rocket designed by 28-year-old rocketeer Daniel Jubb and all up, the Bloodhound will produce more than 135,000hp with a peak thrust output of 122,000Nm.
