The Oklahoma Sonic Boom Experiment and the Politics of Supersonic Aviation

David Suisman is associate professor of history at the University of Delaware presents a lecture on the events during the Oklahoma Sonic Boom Experiment.This lecture explores the history of sonic booms, with special focus on the causes, contexts, and consequences of the Oklahoma City experiment. It argues that within the political economy of the Cold War, sonic booms became a new kind of state power which touched people through their senses and functioned as a kind of “technopolitics” that intruded upon the practice of everyday life. The final section considers the legacy of sonic booms and the militarization of sound in the twenty-first century.
