Bloodhound project aims to inspires the Young Engineers of tomorrow, has emerged with a full-scale model of the team's actual world land speed-record hopeful. Bloodhound Education Program is a ploy to get school-aged kids into the sciences by showing them exactly what Algebra can do. The team has unveiled a 42-foot-long life-size replica of the machine that it hopes to use to obliterate the standing world land-speed record of a little over 763 mph.
So far, construction of the rear section of the machine is slated to begin in the second quarter of next year and the team claims that it's in talks with another organization to begin building the front half right now. That means we could be hearing reports of shakedown runs by the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012. From there, it's a short hop to the Hakskeen Pan in South Africa for the real trial.
