Bloodhound SSC to the rescue of Brit school children

It seems that the Brits are at it again. Not content with taking a car past the sound barrier, the Bloodhound SSC (Super Sonic Car) is being developed to go even faster than the original Thrust SSC. Bloodhound will reportedly be powered by an EJ200 (the jet engine that powers the Eurofighter Typhoon) AND a rocket.

So how do they justify spending millions on this ego-trip? Well, the avowed purpose of this exercise is not just to set a new world record but to help inspire Brit school childred to do better in school. Read the story from the BBC.
