Branch at NASA Glenn know that noise isn’t just

and to draw the world to their doorstep. But as airport traffic increases, cities are faced with tough choices pitting the quality of life of thousands of residents
living near airports against the greater good of their
Imagine what it would be like if we could keep aircraft
noise at the airport.
That’s exactly what we have in mind at NASA
Glenn. Rather than finding ways to live with noise,
we’re conducting the research needed to understand the underlying physics that enables engineers to develop quieter airplanes.
