    He says exactly what I've been feeling over the last few years. I'm not sure it'll be as rapid as 20 years, there's a huge amount of infrastructure to be put in place to embrace all of this, but in 40 years I think that's exactly the way it'll be.

    I agree with Andrew: the infrastructure requirement and cost will be a challenge politically and financially. I assume the technology, as usual, will be far ahead of the political process.

    Oddly enough I've been working on a book about Concorde, and discovered that it was actually a dictum of Washington that the US plane companies were forbidden to develop supersonic passenger planes. Politics suck!
