NASA video lets you hear the sounds of jets that haven't been built yet

The folks at NASA have designed a computer program that will enable them to hear the sound profiles of their planned experimental aircraft in real-world scenarios.

According to NASA, this sample video is “an ‘auralization’ — a visual representation of a complex set of noise data and predictions — that shows the noise differences between one of today’s typical aircraft and a possible future hybrid wing body aircraft.”

Take a listen.
