Imagine flying from Tokyo to Paris in less than two and a half hours, without having to burn tons of fossil fuel. One day it might be possible. The concept of zero-emissions, supersonic flight is being explored by European aircraft maker, EADS.

Known as ZEHST, for Zero Emission High Supersonic Transport, the system uses a combination of three different types of engine.
