At 3,836 mph, Which Way Does the Air Flow?

High-speed aerodynamics gives rise to a different set of problems than aerodynamics of objects moving slower than hypersonic (3,836 mph, or 5 times the speed of sound). University at Buffalo aerospace engineer James Chen is determined to understand high speed airflow and reduce turbulence in order to pave the way for more efficient, safer, and quieter supersonic flight.
