some answers...
What do you know about Gas Dynamics? Have you ever heard about a Shock Wave, or do you know what's the Mach Number?
I know the gas law, I have taken a peek at bernoulli's equation, I have understood that when flying faster than the speed of sound the density of air is allowed to be changed (is this important).
I know what a shockwave is and 1 mach is speed of sound while 5 mach is 5*speed of sound

The other forum thread you posted unfortunately did not help me. It spoke of some singularity which I couldn't see.
I wonder if the condensation continues to follow the plane or is it just as it breaks the barrier? Because the sonic boom continues after the plane has broken the barrier....
