Bloodhound Supersonic Car – level 2

02-10-2015 15:00

The Bloodhound Supersonic Car is part rocket, part supersonic jet, and part car. It will try to set a new world record of moving 1,000 miles per hour. That is faster than a bullet fired from a handgun.

It took 8 years to make the car which pushes today’s science. Over 200 companies and 12 universities supported the making of the car.

Difficult words: supersonic (faster than the speed of sound), jet (a fast plane), support (to help).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
