Caption

Doppler effect. Computer artwork showing the bunching of sound waves as an aircraft travels at the speed of sound. Because the source of the waves (the aircraft) and the waves themselves are travelling at the same speed, the waves are compressed immediately in front of the aircraft and merge into a single shock wave (white).
