New supersonic passenger planes designed by Boeing and other manufacturers offer the chance to connect continents faster than ever. However, these future aircraft at supersonic and hypersonic speeds could also affect the environment at a much higher rate compared to today's air transport vehicles.
Three startup companies - Aerion, Boom, and Spike - have unveiled plans to develop supersonic aircraft that can fly at more than twice the speed of sound (about 1,234 km/h).
