PHOTOS: NASA Captures Shockwaves of Supersonic Aircrafts Using the Schlieren Technique

NASA continues to shock. Capturing the first-ever images showing the interaction between shockwaves of two supersonic aircrafts, the agency has hit another milestone in supersonic research. The shockwaves, caused by rapid pressure changes when the aircraft flies faster than the speed of sound, are responsible for what we hear on the ground known as a […]
