THE first test of a hypersonic aircraft that could carry “unstoppable” nuclear warheads at staggering speeds of 4,563mph has been deemed a “huge success” by Chinese scientists

A team of scientists conducted the first successful flight of the Starry Sky-2 hypersonic aircraft at a secret location in northwest China on Friday last week.

The cutting-edge aircraft was fired into space using its unique shockwave propulsion system, an experimental design known as a waverider.
