You’re looking at the possible future of space flight. It’s known as the Supersonic Green Machine, and the rationale behind it is was to create a spacecraft that minimizes the effect of sonic booms. The craft, designed by Lockheed Martin for Nasa, incorporates what amounts to a spoiler. The “inverted V” should improved airflow over the craft, thereby lessening that destructive boom.

It won’t be here anytime soon. It might never be here at all, for that matter.

The mock-up was put together by Lockheed Martin for Nasa. Nasa, which has, I think, $46 to its name (and no help from the president, by the way), wants to know what spaceflight may look like in the year 2035.
