NASA’s Parker probe could travel fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington in one second. Find out how it's possible in Aerospace America #AiaaSpace🌌

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe, now on its way toward the sun, must survive the searing temperatures in the solar corona to unlock the processes driving the solar wind and coronal mass ejections that can harm satellites and electronics on Earth. We spoke to the scientists and engineers behind Parker’...

Long read: The obstacles that remain in the path of commercial supersonic flight, and what companies large and small are doing to get around them #AiaaAviation✈️

The effort to build an airplane with a quieter sonic boom could let ordinary people break the sound barrier again.

This month's issue of Aerospace America contains a feature story about the Sierra Nevada Corporation Dream Chaser. Steve Lindsey, interviewed here, will also be speaking next week at #AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum in Cincinnati. #AiaaPropEnergy

If all goes as Sierra Nevada Corp. hopes, you’ll soon be hearing a lot more about Dream Chaser, the spacecraft with a history of ups and downs. Amanda Miller toured the new Colorado facility where the first spaceflight version of Dream Chaser will be built.

Drones replace July 4th fireworks in western towns worried about wildfires. But where's the 'boom'?

Drones helped to make the 4th of July sparkle in many towns concerned about wildfires. #AiaaAviation

Towns in California, Colorado and Arizona – facing another season of drought and wildfire – are turning to drone shows as a less risky alternative to organized fireworks, encouraged by the development of jaw-dropping, choreographed shows such as the one Intel put on at the Winter Olympics.
