2018 NASA Ames Trip

Dr. Doig took some of Cal Poly’s finest student aerodynamicists up to NASA Ames last week (students in his unique Aerodynamic Research and Development class, AERO568/569), where they got a rare look inside the National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Center (a.k.a. the world’s biggest wind tunnel). Teams got feedback on their own projects for Cal Poly’s Low Speed Wind Tunnel, and spent the day with many Cal Poly alums who work at the cutting edge of R&D on programs like parachutes for Mars, low sonic boom demonstrators, and the massive Space Launch System rocket.
