The move is part of the space agency's plan to help develop the X-59, a quieter technological vehicle being produced by Nasa's supersonic jet team.
Galveston is set to be the testing cite for NASA's supersonic prototype.
A sonic boom is the loud thunder-like sound that happens because of shock waves that are created when an object travelling through the atmosphere travels faster than the speed of sound.
NASA's experimental supersonic X-plane project has a new name: the X-59 QueSST. Virgin Galactic and Boom Technology are working together to build a supersonic jet capable of flying at twice the speed of sound - about 1,451 mph (2,335 km/h) - to cut the travel time from New York City to London down to 3 hours.
Eric Boullier resigns as McLaen reshuffle leadership
The team have reacted after a disappointing start to 2018 following their switch from Honda power to Renault. The McLaren F1 team has announced that Eric Boullier has resigned as Racing Director for the team.
Lockheed Martin was to collaborate with NASA for this project and now, reports have emerged saying that by November, flight tests will be conducted over a populated region in Texas to test how silent the aircraft turned out to be. That's because new supersonic planes are being developed that can revolutionize commercial flights, and NASA wants to find out if the noise levels those supersonic aircraft put out will be off-putting to people on the ground.
An initial test of the research methodology using the F/A-18 was conducted in 2011 with the help of the USA military community that lives on base at Edwards Air Force Base in California. "But the airplane's shape is carefully tailored such that those shockwaves do not combine", said Ed Haering, an aerospace engineer at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. NASA intends to fly the X-59 over several towns or cities and gather data from residents on the ground about their perception of the sound the supersonic aircraft generates. They are being fronted with funds by Japan Airlines, who issued the company $10 million for their supersonic endeavor.
"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". Spike will be testing out its S-512 Supersonic Jet around the end of this year. This is why the F/A-18 is so important to us as a tool.
Munis d'armes de poing, ils prennent en otage le pilote et l'obligent à voler jusqu'à Melun, à une trentaine de kilomètres au Sud. Lors de l'opération, il n'y a eu ni blessé ni otage en dehors du pilote.
Poland's ruling Law and Justice Party instituted a mandatory retirement age of 65 for Supreme Court justices earlier this year. The measure was set to take effect at midnight, potentially forcing more than a third of the 72 justices off the bench.
However, Fury has insisted that he is not interested in fighting Bellew, rather he is obsessed with fighting Wilder of Joshua. Joseph Parker is accusing Anthony Joshua of delaying a showdown with Deontay Wilder.
The Australian dollar slumped almost 1 per cent overnight to a low of 73.1 as the greenback rose and amid ongoing trade tension. The ongoing breakdown in the relationship between the USA and China has been a key source of market volatility this year.
Il y aurait un précédent de violence domestique entre la mère et son fils, la police étant déjà intervenue une fois auprès d'eux. Celle-ci aurait été en mesure de désarmer l'aînée, qui aurait ensuite saisi sa deuxième arme avant d'être de nouveau maîtrisée.
Au général, Marquez lâche Lorenzo et Rossi, il voulait et devait reprendre la main sur ce championnat, c'est fait. C'est aussi la 64e victoire de l'Espagnol, toutes catégories confondues, la quatrième de la saison (en huit GP!).
In the photo, she is standing in front of a Disney Princess-themed banner and gesturing to a pink, doll-shaped birthday cake. Judge Comstock told Kinner he was "an extreme danger to the community" and ordered him held without bond.
England sends Colombia home following shoot-out drama
Asked on England's chances in the rest of the tournament, he added: "Final mate, we got it, we got it in the bag". However, despite those positive numbers, England only mustered two efforts on target compared to Colombia's four.
