"Berlin to New York in less than One Hour!" written by Hugo Gernsback and illustrated by Frank R. Paul in the November 1931 issue of Everyday Science and Mechanics. This proposed spaceship would reach an altitude 700 miles on its one hour trip from Berlin to New York. The article notes that "the tremendous acceleration of the flyer during the first few minutes makes things rather uncomfortable for the passengers." Artificial refrigeration would keep the passengers and ship from getting too hot on re-entry. A major problem to solve is the weight of the fuel required for the trip.
