The 1,000 mph British rocket car has been unveiled in Bristol. The vehicle will be used in an attempt to break the land speed record and is called the Bloodhound SSC. The current land speed record is 763mph.
The car is powered by an EJ200 Eurofighter Typhoon engine and a 400kg rocket. Together the two engines produce the equivalent of 133,150bhp. The wheels of the car are made from forged aluminum and the vehicle will be driven by pilot Andy Green.
The record setting attempt will be performed at Hakskeen Pan in Northern Cape Province in South Africa in 2011. The project has 166 sponsors and the car is part of an educational program for 2,410 schools.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
