Researchers analyzing the Hubble Space Telescope's dramatic images of the Cartwheel galaxy have discovered immense comet-like clouds of gas speeding at nearly 700,000 mph through the galaxy's core. [Image on left] - The Cartwheel is part of a group of four galaxies, as shown in this collage of...

In 2001, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) initiated the Quiet Supersonic Platform (QSP) program to identify the technologies needed to drastically reduce the sonic boom generated by a supersonic aircraft. The QSP program objective is to design a long-range, advanced...

Two strikingly different supersonic business jets are on the drawing boards. The supersonic business jet from Aerion relies on natural-laminar-flow wings to fly efficiently at super and subsonic speeds. The Aerion business jet will be powered by two JT8D engines from Pratt & Whitney. They measure...

Supersonic flight over the continental U.S. is prohibited because of the potential damage from sonic booms, i.e., pressure waves from the jet that slam into the ground. That 's why NASA engineers at Edwards Air Force Base in California have been exploring noise-reduction techniques using a modified...

...used to calculate the fatigue life of the F-5E, also known as the Tiger II, and they had discovered that the airframes of the supersonic fighter were a lot farther along in their service lives than anyone had realized....

In 2020, NASA is preparing to test a Supersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (SIAD) that may be capable of landing larger aircraft on Mars. The SIAD-E is inflated by a combination of gas generators and ram air inlets, allowing it to fully deploy in less than 2 seconds in conditions up to Mach...

Waterjets cut with a supersonic stream of water that is so powerful it can cut through materials in one pass without shredding or crushing them. The Jet Edge water jet is created by pressurizing water up to 90,000 psi (6,200 bar) with a Jet Edge waterjet intensifier pump. The waterjet cutting...

Before any of the U.S. Navy's F/A-18 twin-engine supersonic fighter jets can be put into operation, the wings of the aircraft must undergo fatigue testing in a controlled environment to ensure that they are capable of withstanding the forces that will be encountered during real-world flight...

It's as big as Manhattan Island, is 10 trillion times denser than steel and is hurtling our way at speeds over 100 times faster than a supersonic jet. An alien spaceship? No, it's a runaway neutron star, called RX J185635-3754, forged in a stellar explosion that would have been visible to our...
