Join us on Thursday, May 13, 2021, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET to learn about NASA's work in Aeronautics.
With so much recent media attention on our Commercial Crew Program and Mars 2020 “Perseverance” rover, it might be easy to forget the first “A” in NASA. However, without the foundational “small steps” of aeronautics research, there would have been no “giant leaps” on the Moon, no Space Shuttle, no goal of sending humans to Mars.
Today, NASA continues to build on the storied legacies of the X-1, X-15 and other experimental aircraft to advance all aspects of aviation: global demand to fly, rising fuel costs, durable flight designs, and the need to protect our planet. With breakthroughs in electric power technology, NASA is re-imagining its application to airplanes capable of vertical take-off and landing, benefitting the rapidly growing sector of urban air mobility for passengers and cargo. Yet another way that, “NASA is with you when you fly.”
