How supersonic jets create shockwaves

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Stunning images captured by physicists at NASA experimenting with a new photographic technology have revealed how supersonic aircraft's shockwaves move and interact.

The photographs could help the agency develop jets which break the sound barrier without producing a sonic boom, but instead a much quieter rumble.

When NASA scientist JT Heineck got his first glimpse of the images after more than a decade of work on the project, he said: "We never dreamt that it would be this clear, this beautiful."
