Supersonic

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/11/new-era-supersonic-air-travel-concorde?CMP=share_btn_fb

Scientists are working on commercial airliners that will fly faster than the speed of sound.  The speed of sound is about 700 miles per hour.  Every airliner is required to fly slower than that because the sonic boom is too disruptive to people on the ground.

Now they are working on ways to reduce or eliminate the sonic boom.  Several systems are being worked on to make air travel much faster.  This is the type of high technology systems the government should be financing.

This type of work provides good high paying jobs in research, then manufacturing, and finally operations.  If you can fly people across the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans in half the time or less than happens now, then you increase productivity and general more business.  This is how to grow our economy out of recession and save the middle class; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
