NASA plans to publicly test its quiet supersonic technology this year

NASA said that if new regulations are written regarding supersonic flight over land, it could open a new market for commercial air travel.

"Instead of getting a loud boom-boom, you're going to get at least two quiet thump-thump sounds, if you even hear them at all".

Sometime then, an F/A-18 fighter jet will conduct a series of maneuvers, those designed to create both very loud sonic booms and somewhat more muted ones.

"For everyone working on this important project, this is great news and we're thrilled with the designation", Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, said in the NASA statement.

The air molecules immediately begin to resist the infiltration of this supersonic jet, which generates dozens of small shockwaves, which they move away from the plane and to the f/A-18 has enter in front and back in two different shockwave.

According to the report, from November onwards, F/A-18 Hornets will be create regular sonic booms over the water near Galveston, a town in Texas, as well as quieter sonic "thumps" directly over the town.

Transitioning from female to male during the film, Gill flourishes in the male dominated mob world of prostitution and crime. Gill, who was born Lois Jean Gill but lived her life as a man and married her long-term partner Cynthia Bruno, died in 2003.

The agency has recruited citizen observers to provide feedback on how much of a difference they are making, and how the booms compare to each other.

NASA research pilot Jim "Clue" Less stands next to a F/A-18 that he is flying to help test low-boom flight research.

NASA recently awarded Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company a United States dollars 247.5 million contract to build a faster-than-sound X-plane - official designated X-59 "QueSST" - that will demonstrate quiet supersonic technologies in straight and level flight over a large area.

"We'll never know exactly what everyone heard". The device will likely be called X-59 QueSST. "We won't have a noise monitor on their shoulder inside their home", Alexandra Loubeau, NASA's team lead for sonic boom community response research at Langley, Virginia, said in a statement. "The scientifically valid data gathered from these community overflights will be presented to USA and worldwide regulators, who will use the information to help them come up with rules based on noise levels that enable new commercial markets for supersonic flight over land". This will help establish a new testing process for the X-59 when it gets built.

You'd only hear the sonic boom when the shockwaves reach your tiny little ears.
