Ernst Mach (1838-1916)

Mach was an Austrian physicist who gave his name to the Mach number. This number is a method of relating an object's speed to the speed of sound in a particular medium, usually air.
He also worked on shock waves and inertia, coming to conclusions that conflicted with Einsteins' theory of relativity.

Below Mach1 called subsonic.
Above Mach1 called Supersonic
