Aussie Invader 5R

PERTH, Australia (Aussie Invader/Interorbital PR) — Interorbital Systems, based at the Mojave Air and Space Port in the High Desert of California, has been chosen by Australia’s world land speed record team to develop, test, and integrate a 62,000-lb-thrust (275,790 Newton) rocket engine into the Aussie Invader 5R.

The Aussie Invader 5R requires an engine that can produce 200,000hp to push the 9 tonne, 52ft (16m) monster rocket-car through the sound barrier and on to a 1,000 mph land speed record-breaking event, set for 2020.
