NASA funds energy-efficient supersonic aircraft project with $100,000
Supersonic aircrafts are the pinnacle of human-made technology and were long-destined to go green. Paving the way ahead, Ge-Chen Zha a University of Miami engineer with help from a team from Florida State University has come up with an exceptional bi-directional flying wing (SBiDir-FW) supersonic aircraft that not only sports cutting-edge technology and design, but is also extremely fuel efficient and green. Realizing the potential of the concept, NASA has vested a whopping $100,000 in the project that will involve further development of the Ninja-star-like aircraft. Capable of travelling without producing the usual sonic boom, these aircraft have low drag and fuel consumption making them an ideal development for a world with quickly depleting fossil fuels.
