NASA/Boeing Team to design a Radical New Airliner

Posted by in categories: energy, transportation

I really love this.

Boeing and NASA have teamed up to radically redesign wings on commercial airliners.

The Transonic Truss Based Wing is about 50 percent longer and much thinner, improving fuel efficiency by 10 percent, and reducing the cost and emissions of future airliners.

Seems a fairly simple change with significant benefits, are there any downsides?

How Boeing and NASA may reinvent the wing to reduce the cost and emissions of air travel.
