    (and please don't google it.. or if you do google it, please don't post the answer)

    but what is the oldest thing, designed by, invented by or made by humans, that can (or part of which can) travel faster than the speed of sound?

    Now then, I think the speed of sound is about 690mph or 300 metres per second (I may be wrong, but I'm avoiding googling it as requested)....

    I'm thinking along the lines of a canon ball after gunpowder was invented, or maybe something like a bolt from a crossbow?

    Not talking about some kind of signal (reflections from a fire, or hand signals across hilltops?)
