NewScientist are calling it the video that deserves to go viral and we rather agree. The fire resistant suit has been designed for driver Andy Green and his 1600km/hr BloodHound rocket car. And rather than turn to ash, the suit handles the extreme heat and flames with relative ease.
Another piece of the rocket-powered Bloodhound 1609km/h car jigsaw has popped into place, with chip-maker Intel announcing it’ll be providing the car’s brain. But rather than using the company’s top-spec chips, Bloodhound will be powered using cheap Intel Atoms.
