NASA is bringing back the X Men for an electric project.
The short version:
- In the “near future” NASA will perform test flights on the X-57 Maxwell.
- It has been two decades since NASA has released an X plane. X planes are created to test new technologies.
- The X-57 will be the first fully electric experimental plane that NASA will fly.
- First, the plane needs to go through ground testing.
- The X-57 will lead to standards, design practices, and certification plans for the upcoming electronic flight industry.
Not only is electric flight exciting, but NASA released a new X plane brings back a feeling of innovation, exploration, and frontier spirit to that great organization. Lets make sure NASA has “The Right Stuff”.
