NASA's 10-year plan revolves around designing and building the X-Series, a line of environmentally-friendly airplanes. It has already committed $43.5 million through 2020 for the project.
NASA is first building a small, entirely electric plane called the X-57. It plans on completing the plane in just under four years.
After completing the X-57, NASA will transform a standard aircraft into an entirely electric plane. That plane is set to fly in March 2018.
