NASA creating ‘quiet’ sonic booms over Galveston
NASA Prepares for Future of Supersonic Experimental Flight
NASA’s QSF18 on Social Media!
Greetings Galveston! Want to know more about the series of quiet supersonic research flights we’re conducting off the coast of TX? Beginning tomorrow, stop by McGuire-Dent Recreation Center and see how our research may lead to an exceptional reduction in commercial flight times. pic.twitter.com/NFMT3edKCh— NASA Aeronautics (@NASAaero) November 4, 2018
Test pilots Jim “Clue” Less+Wayne “Ringo” Ringelberg got our Quiet Supersonic Flights off the ground today in Galveston, TX! These flights will examine techniques for gathering community response data from future flights with our newest x-plane, the X-59→https://t.co/YhiAwXKpP7 pic.twitter.com/fNV5Jsq4iK— NASA Aeronautics (@NASAaero) November 6, 2018
You asked, we answered! Our @NASAaero experts answered your questions about our Quiet Supersonic Flights that happened this week in Texas. We’re researching technology to significantly reduce sonic booms from faster-than-sound air travel over land.Question from @EEkouevi: pic.twitter.com/ozPe90O09Q — Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) November 9, 2018
Hello Galveston 👋🏻 The McGuire-Dent Recreation Center is closed today (11/11) and tomorrow (11/12), but you can still learn all about our quiet supersonic research flights by visiting us @SpaceCenterHou and on https://t.co/YhiAwXKpP7. pic.twitter.com/SJq41S7v7K— NASA Aeronautics (@NASAaero) November 11, 2018
You can also visit us at @SpaceCenterHou for an in-depth look at our Low-boom Flight Demonstration mission in which we’re working with @LockheedMartin to design, build and test a supersonic aircraft that reduces a sonic boom to a gentle thump. pic.twitter.com/9MIVyriFM1— NASA Aeronautics (@NASAaero) November 4, 2018
I’m really excited about quiet supersonic technology and its ability to be transformative for flight and our economy.Do you have questions about our quiet supersonic research flights? Reply with your Qs here and our @NASA experts will answer them later this week. https://t.co/c4DxMnqB3z — Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) November 6, 2018
Galveston, Hitchcock, Texas City, Goat Island: What did you hear?👂🏻Starting today, we are flying an F/A-18 at supersonic speed over the Galveston, TX area for our Quiet Supersonic Flights 2018 campaign, and we’re inviting you to record your responses→https://t.co/q6nR58FMKq pic.twitter.com/GusXQpcynQ— NASA Aeronautics (@NASAaero) November 6, 2018
Attention Galveston: Be a citizen scientist and tell us what you hear during our quiet supersonic flights this month! Through November 14 we’re flying a research aircraft at supersonic speed over the area, and you can record your responses here→https://t.co/Gzx0tIcZc5 pic.twitter.com/FBkOuUNLQ9— NASA Aeronautics (@NASAaero) November 10, 2018
