The X-59 supersonic jet is designed and built to reduce the sonic boom to a mere thump. It's the centerpiece of NASA's Quesst mission to provide the FAA with an acceptable noise standard to repeal current regulations that have prohibited supersonic flight over land since 1973. The X-59 is key to advancing aviation and the future of commercial supersonic flight over land.
