A team of engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have won a NASA contract to design the “airplane of the future”. They’ve been given $2 million, and 18 months to come up with a cleaner, quieter more efficient form of air travel that could become a reality in the year 2030. MIT faculty members,  as well as several students, will be working on the project along with engineers from Aerodyne Research, Aurora Flight Sciences, Boeing Phantom Works, and Pratt & Whitney.
