Hi - I'm Blake, Founder/CEO at Boom. After watching no tangible progress in supersonics since Concorde was shut down, I started Boom because I want supersonic flight in our lifetime. Not just as a private jet, but something most anyone can afford to fly. I'll be around for the next hour and will answer as many questions as I can. [EDIT: Done now]

Finally a successor to the Concorde. I am just not sure about the name. Is 💥 really a good name for a ✈︎?

Clearly they should fire the entire marketing team for calling anything you want people to get into "Boom". Love to see who buys a ticket to fly on a plane called boom so I can scare them all the way up till take off with all kinds of explosion gifs.

Go figure this would be started by internet folks. Key in on the details. Concorde only survived because of subsidies. Fuel is freaking expensive. The fuel costs go up very high. Sonic booms can shatter windows and that's why supersonic planes are only allowed to do their sonic booms over the ocean. This is a 10-20% improvement in speed and no airline… See more
