4500mph is Mach 6+ near sea level; higher at higher altitudes. It's
also impossible for an aircraft like the Turbokat - just too much
drag and not enough thermal protection.

>P.S. Also, how fast is the speed of heat?

Depends on whether it's radiant, convection, or conduction heat
transfer. Seriously, it's just made-up jargon for the show.

who promises to stop being so serious :)
