With 14 electric motors turning propellers and all of them integrated into a uniquely-designed wing, NASA will test new propulsion technology using an experimental airplane now designated the X-57 and nicknamed "Maxwell." NASA Administrator Charles Bolden highlighted the agency's first X-plane designation in a decade "With the return of piloted X-planes to NASA's research capabilities - which is a key part of our 10-year-long New Aviation Horizons initiative - the general aviation-sized X-57 will take the first step in opening a new era of aviation," Bolden said. As many as five larger transport-scale X-planes also are planned as part of the initiative. Its goals - like the X-57 - include demonstrating advanced technologies to reduce fuel use, emissions and noise, and thus accelerate their introduction to the marketplace. The X-57 number designation was assigned by the U.S...
