Lockheed Martin supersonic jet hits the wind tunnel – in model form

Artist's concept of Lockheed Martin’s Quiet Supersonic Technology (QueSST) X-plane

Last March, NASA announced that as part of its New Aviation Horizons initiative, Lockheed Martin had been chosen to develop a manned demonstrator aircraft called the Quiet Supersonic Technology (QueSST) X-plane. It would be used to test technologies that would make commercial supersonic aircraft quiet enough to fly over land. Eleven months later, Lockheed and the agency are ready to take the next step as a nine-percent scale model starts wind tunnel tests at the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.

NASA snaps pics of the world’s largest solar farm from space

Close-up of Dam Solar Park on January 5, 2017

With renewable energy on the rise, it makes perfect sense for the title "world's largest solar plant" to change hands pretty quickly. In 2014 for example, the 550 MW Topaz Solar Farm held the title, to be toppled in November by a 648 MW plant in Kamuthi India. At this point in time, China's Dam Solar Park has risen above them all with 850 MW of capacity, and NASA has now provided some imagery that offers a different perspective on all that clean, green power.
