Simply as that. Mark my words.

NASA is already testing "quiet boom" aircrafts. I hope that the era of supersonic travelling would come back soon, I'm longing to get aboard of one of these planes.

The U.S. Congress could reauthorize the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) to set federal and international policies, regulations, and standards

well, the FAA has the authority to set international policies. good to know.
