Southern White Rhinos Now Roaming at Nashville Zoo

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Nashville Zoo is proud to announce the introduction of Southern white rhinoceros to our animal family. Four young females are now roaming in the Zoo’s former elephant exhibit.

“This is the first time we are able to bring rhinos to Nashville,” said Zoo President Rick Schwartz. “We had to make several modifications to the former elephant habitat and barn in order to properly care for rhinos. The end result is exceptional and we can’t wait to show it to our guests.”

The four captive born white rhinos came from a reserve in South Africa and are slowly adjusting to the new sights, sounds, and smells that come with their new home here in Nashville.

NASA on QueSST for Low Noise Supersonic Flight

 

Written by Jimi Russell
NASA Glenn Research Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationCleveland, OH – Can you imagine flying from New York to Los Angeles in half the time?

Think about it. Commercial flight over land in a supersonic jet would mean less time in-flight; less time in a cramped seat next to your new, and probably unwanted, best friend; fewer tiny bags of peanuts; and more time at your destination.

Couldn’t Concorde do that? Nope. Concorde, which last flew in 2003, utilized 1950s technology, was only supersonic over the ocean and was deemed too noisy to fly over people.
