NASA unveils the revolutionary X-59 Quesst ‘quiet’ supersonic jet

Story


The X-59 is finally here.

The X-59 is designed to break the sound barrier without the thunderous sonic booms that typically occur when aircraft go supersonic. Instead, the Quesst will make a much quieter “thump,” similar to the sound of a car door slamming as heard from indoors. If successful, the jet has the potential to revolutionize supersonic flight and aviation in general.
