Spotlight Trend: Sound barrier

"Sound barrier" has emerged as a top media narrative for today. The New York Times were early amplifiers of this narrative, quickly followed by other news sources like Fox News, CNN, Reuters, among many others.

The trending phrase "sound barrier" has dominated national news media due to the death of iconic test pilot Chuck Yeager. The pilot famously broke the sound barrier in 1947; he also served in multiple wars including World War II and the Vietnam War. Yeager passed away on the evening of Dec. 7th at the age of 97.
