December 12, 2023 - Scenes of NASA’s X-59 quiet supersonic (Quesst) research jet on the ramp at Lockheed Martin Skunk Works in Palmdale, California during sunrise, shortly after completion of its painting. The X-59 is the centerpiece of NASA’s Quesst mission, which seeks to solve one of the major barriers to supersonic flight over land, currently banned in the United States, by making sonic booms quieter.

December 12, 2023 - Scenes of NASA’s X-59 quiet supersonic (Quesst) research jet on the ramp at Lockheed Martin Skunk Works in Palmdale, California during sunrise, shortly after completion of its painting. The X-59 is the centerpiece of NASA’s Quesst mission, which seeks to solve one of the major barriers to supersonic flight over land, currently banned in the United States, by making sonic booms quieter.

The X-59's unique design and size ... 99.7 feet long including a thin, tapered 38-foot-long nose and 29.5 feet wide ... the X-59 was built to demonstrate the ability to fly supersonic, or faster than the speed of sound ... expected to fly at Mach 1.4 / 925 mph ... while reducing the typically loud sonic boom produced by aircraft at such speeds to a quieter sonic “thump”.
