On Thursday, the team will for the first time ever roll out the 13.4 metres long, 7.5 tonne auto, that they aim to break the record with on Hakskeen Pan in the Northern Cape in the near future.

The auto will be piloted by RAF Wing Commander Andy Green and is expected to reach a positively snail-like 200mph as part of a "slow-speed" trial that will test the Eurofighter Typhoon jet engine that is now strapped to the top of it. "The vehicle is designed for high speed on a desert rather than sprint performance off the line, but it still accelerated from zero to 210mph in less than eight seconds".

Flu shots available at Mayo Clinic Health System in Tomah
The Centers for Disease Control recommends that everyone six months and older get the flu vaccine as soon as it is available. While seasonal flu outbreaks can happen as early as October, flu activity is usually highest between December and February.

The Bloodhound SSC is a jet and rocket-powered streamliner that uses a Formula 1 engine as a fuel pump.

"Stopping a slippery, 5 tonne auto, running on low-grip aircraft tyres, is a challenge within the relatively limited length of the 2.7 km runway here, particularly as the vehicle continues accelerating after I lift off the throttle", says Green. "It felt like about eight seconds, which was what we were expecting". Probably up to somewhere close to a thousand degrees, the front brakes were smoking furiously after the second run.

It's no surprise, then, that the Bloodhound SSC required a professional driver like RAF Wing Commander Andy Green, who set the current World Land Speed Record of 1,228 km/h (763.035 mph) 20 years ago.

This is all knowledge needed to go 800 miles per hour in 2019, and then up to 1,000 miles per hour in 2020 - when the rocket technology becomes available.
