Silent supersonic airplane is coming soon

The US space agency has announced it’s going ahead with plans to develop an aircraft that can break the sound barrier — but quietly. Which means that unlike it’s sonic boom-producing predecessors, including Concorde, it could operate commercial routes over land.

NASA has awarded Lockheed Martin a $247.5 million contract to build the supersonic aircraft.
It wants the aerospace company to refine, build and test the experimental aircraft — known as the X-plane or “Low-Boom Flight Demonstrator” — and deliver it to NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center by the end of 2021.
