NASA Reveals The Name Of Its Quiet Supersonic X-plane

The practice data recorded at Galveston could begin proving to your principle what the right noise level should be, but it will not be until the X-59 flight is triggered and the final conclusion that does not end your community will be removed.

Until now, NASA says the plane had simply been called the X-plane and that it has a shape that prevents the shockwaves to come together, which is what produces that dreaded booming sound.

NASA is trying to build a supersonic jet that can break the sound barrier while avoiding ear-splitting sonic booms altogether, Live Science previously reported - but they're not there yet.

The quiet boom: Starting in November, F/A-18 Hornets will create regular sonic booms over the water near Galveston and quieter sonic "thumps" directly over the town. NASA hopes to crack the secret to much quieter supersonic flights in the hopes that it can cut down on the disruptive sound and make high-speed air travel an easier pill to swallow for people living beneath highly-trafficked routes.

They could have proceeded to the knockout stage as the Group B victor until late second half when a controversial penalty goal from the opponent forced them to settle in a draw.

Shockwave focuses directly on the plane under a very strong, focused pair of Sonic Boom. The tests will aim to determine just how loud NASA's new "quiet" supersonic technology really is, and compare it to the sounds of a traditional sonic boom. "While construction continues on the X-59, we can use that diving maneuver to generate quiet sonic thumps over a specific area". The tests around Galveston and "the resulting community response data will enable federal and global rule makers to write new regulations that allow supersonic flight over land, and thus open a whole new market for commercial supersonic air travel", says NASA. Well, the "X-59" part is a nod back to American X-plane history, which kicked off with the world's first supersonic plane, the Bell X-1, famously piloted by Chuck Yeager in 1947 when it broke the speed of sound.

The noise problem has dogged aeronautical innovators looking to create a follow-up to the Anglo-French Concorde project since the aircraft retired in 2003. The space agency has made it a mission to revolutionize air travel.

Japan Airlines invested $10 million into Boom Technologies, a Denver-based start-up that also hopes to revive supersonic air travel in the next decade. Another company, Spike Aerospace, is developing its own S-512 Quiet Supersonic Jet, which would have similar performance.
