NASA Is now developing the Plane that quietly fly Faster than Sound

NASA is now developing the plane that quietly fly faster than sound and will go from NYC to LA in 2 hours.

NASA announced that Lockheed will build the “X-Plane,” a supersonic aircraft without generating a loud sonic boom.

The experimental plane will fly at an altitude of 55,000 feet and cruise at a speed of 940 miles per hour.

Larry Cliatt, principal investigator for NASA, said:

“This project, QSF 18, is a test so we can test the methodology for future community response testing for projects like the LBFD.”

George Abbey, senior fellow in space policy at Rice University’s Baker Institute, explains:

“What NASA is doing is a step in the right direction.

If I could fly supersonic transport, I could reduce that [travel] time. Time is really money, and spending a short time on an airplane vs. a long time, I’d prefer taking the short time.”
