How It Feels To Break The Sound Barrier

There’s something exhilarating about going fast. There’s a lot to be said for having the ability to fly down the interstate or winding country road. But what about going supersonic? That’s a whole new level. But what exactly does it feel like? Or look like even? It’s not something that you see every day. In fact, it’s been 20 years since the Thrust SSC broke the record for the world’s record for the fastest car at 760 mph, which is still the record today. But Bloodhound recently released a video to show what being in a car that breaks the sound barrier is actually like and what goes into setting that record.

You’d be surprised. It’s not as simple as you’d think between keeping the car in a straight line and stopping the car from those kinds of speeds. The last thing you want is to have the steering wheel get away from you or have miscalculated the time needed for braking before you hit something. Stay tuned right here at PowerNation to see if the Bloodhound SSC team is able to shatter the record with their 1,000mph run starting next year. Can you imagine hitting 4-digit speeds? Talk about a thrill.
