Aircraft Engines

Was recently reading a
very nice post on different types of
aircraft engines. Currently there
are only one type that are capable
of carrying out supersonic combustion..
the Scramjets... These rely on
having no moving part and achieve
basic accelaration by the use of
booster rockets.. Such machines have
been tested to achieve max speeds of up to
Mach 9
