I wonder if NASA has done comparative studies on native vs foreign language wrt sub-vocalization and reading/speed reading ?

It is rather well known that native language and (all) foreign languages are "stored" in separate parts of the brain (with some limited controversy over whether there exists "bilingual" people in a biological sense).

I wonder if that has an effect on how we read written text (other than that most people presumably read faster and with better comprehension in their native tongue).
