Who Killed Speed? A Murder Mystery History of Aviation

Blake Scholl

Presented at: OCON 2017

Date: Jun 10, 2017

In most areas of technology, we have enjoyed continuous progress. But not in aviation. We had a Mach 2 airliner (Concorde) but shuttered it. Today’s airliners actually fly slower than 1960s designs. What caused a regression in air travel—and what hope do we have for a renaissance? Boom Supersonic founder/CEO Blake Scholl presents a moral and political history of aviation and shares his company’s ambitious plans to rekindle progress in aviation.
