    NASA has announced the launch of the 10-year "New Aviation Horizons" initiative, which will lead to a new generation of X-planes that are fueled by greener energy, use half the fuel, and are half as loud as commercial aircraft in use today.
    According to Jim Banke from NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, NASA's flight research program is on its way to creating a renaissance of an exciting era in aviation research.
    NASA stated that design-and-build will take several years with aircraft starting their flight campaign around 2020, depending on funding.
