The article considers research on jet transport design conducted by the aerospace industry firm Boeing Co. for the U.S. National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) to determine what technologies might be used in transports by 2045. Boeing's creation of designs for transports which would use liquefied natural gas as fuel or employ hybrid electric jet engines is discussed.
