I just read in the news section that BA wants to continue supersonic air travel.....
the concordes can fly to another 15 years..
BA is really pushing the manufactors to put the Concorde back up in the air by next Febuary.........BA wants the future of supersonci travel to grow.........the article said they want to find a replacment for the concorde by 2015........
my question is......is it possibility that we will seek a growth in supersonic travel?...

It would be nice but I highly doubt that we will see another SST in the near future. I hope though that the Concordes get off the ground. I think though that the traveling public will be wary of them now.

If not a "big" SST, then a small (10-12 seats) supersonic jet may be built in 15 years. It will be able to be used in airline service too, and it is better than nothing for BA and possibly other airlines.
I'm agree with IndianGuy in what he called a step BACK: if not in technology then in transportation, and I can't remember another example of regress in any area of human activity.
Again about the next-generation "big" SST that was almost killed by majority of this forum in another thread : no breakthrough now doesn't mean no breakthrough forever. Despite all CURRENT arguments based on CURRENT technology.
