NASA is aiming to bring back supersonic airliners with reduced noise. The technology behind supersonic flights has evolved, focusing on minimizing the loud booms associated with them. In the past, as exemplified by Chuck Yeager's historic Mach 1 flight, supersonic flights produced deafening booms. However, advancements in aircraft design and engineering have made it possible to mitigate the impact of these booms. NASA's Quesst mission is spearheading this initiative, striving to enable supersonic flights over American cities more quietly. While the allure of superior speed remains irresistible, there is a concerted effort to address the nuisances and potential hazards associated with supersonic flights.
