Stanford Research Department Looking at Noiseless Jet Engines

Gizmodo reports that the Centre for Turbulence Research at Standord is currently imploring the use of a super computer to crunch numbers to help build a silent jet engine.

The implications of this would be huge as noise is currently one of the biggest disadvantages of using jet engines. Current noise regulations for aircrafts can often result in the performance of the engine taking a hit just to ensure that the noise levels are within the legal limit.
