All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm

But it looks like having a pilot/cockpit ! ???
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
...
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Not a usual place - check their gallery on the main page: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/langley/multimedia/images.html  Its mainly about the Orion capsule, but there is also some aviation stuff too. And to answer you directly: NASA Langley Transonic Dynamics Tunnel

But it looks like having a pilot/cockpit ! ???

Its supposed to loiter for days or at least for dozens of hours in a very lightweight airframe in a high altitude. This is three times no-no-no for the crew on board. Besides - this test is clearly related to the wing, thus we don't see any air intakes and the whole center section of the forward fuselage is simply optimised and simplified for that test.
