NASADestinationTomorrow - Episode 4

NASA Destination Tomorrow Video containing five segments as described below. NASA Destination Tomorrow Segment explaining how new tire tread designs and road surfaces are tested at the Aircraft Landing Dynamics Facility. NASA Destination Tomorrow Segment exploring new, lightweight materials called composite materials. The video describes NASA's use of these materials in new space craft parts that are tougher and safer than conventional materials. NASA Destination Tomorrow Segment explaining the history of the flexible wing and the existence of the hang glider. NASA Destination Tomorrow Segment exploring NASA's Hyper-X program that is working on experimental engine designs that could propel commercial planes into space and make conventional rockets a thing of the past. NASA Destination Tomorrow Segment describing wind tunnels and how aircraft designers use them to understand airflow.
