A dangerous new arms race is emerging as China, Russia and the United States all pursue hypersonic weapons.

The U.S. recently announced that it will work with the United Kingdom and Australia to develop not only the missiles but defensive measures as well.

This comes as top military officials warn the world is growing more unstable and dangerous.

Back in September, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S. created a security alliance known as AUKUS.

The partnership is back in the spotlight after a recent announcement that the three countries will collaborate to develop hypersonic technology.

"You know, hypersonics are all the rage," said foreign policy expert Michael O'Hanlon. "There's about five or six technologies that are really quite promising but are also sort of the vogue sort of the new thing to talk about when you're trying to sound like you're on top of it with defense modernization priorities."

Russia and China are also racing to develop these lethal weapons.

The missiles can reach altitudes of up to 300,000 feet and are nearly impossible to detect. China tested such a missile back in October, and Russia claims to have used the weapons in Ukraine.
