Check out the concept photos (above) to see what planes we COULD be using for travel in 2025.
Last year, contracts were awarded to teams at Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and Northrop Grumman by NASA. The teams were asked to create the perfect plane for 2025, which must be "silent and with low fuel consumption."
Here were NASA's requirements for the "perfect plane":
And each design has to fly up to 85 percent of the speed of sound; cover a range of approximately 7,000 miles; and carry between 50,000 and 100,000 pounds of payload, either passengers or cargo.
We LOVED the Lockheed Martin design, but the Boeing and Northrop Grumman concepts were pret-ty cool as well.
Which of these do U think is the closest to being the perfect plane?
