Is there a future for supersonic passenger aircraft?

We asked readers of The Engineer for their questions and put them to an expert panel, including representatives from Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce, Reaction Engines and Imperial College London.
yes sir, indeed. Supersonic passenger transportation IS the Future. Have no doubt in that.

Even if companies are able to develop a commercially viable supersonic passenger aircraft, I feel it'll probably be a medium term solution only (say the next 20 - 30 years). The future is teleportation 😀

I am afraid not. You cannot teleport complex cells and reassemble them identical to the original. E = m C^2 is another complication. An 80 kg person dematerialized will represent a huge release of energy. How will the ego be dematerialized reassembled?
