Brig. Gen. Curtis Bedke, commander of the Air Force Flight Test Center at Edwards Air Force Base, received some first-hand insight this week on how to fly a Space Shuttle approach and landing
The Space Shuttle Discovery is targeted for launch from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida on the Return-to-Flight mission STS-114 during a window between May 15 and June 3. Discovery is scheduled to land at KSC at the conclusion of the mission about 11 days later. However, if the weather or other conditions prevent a landing in Florida, the shuttle could be diverted to the primary back-up landing site at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC) at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.
Robert Dale Reed, a distinguished NASA aeronautics researcher who pioneered Lifting Body and remotely piloted research aircraft programs at the Dryden Flight Research Center in the 1960s and 70s has died.
The old saying, "birds of a feather, flock together," can now be applied to a couple of small uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs) flown in a NASA research experiment using principles derived from studies of fish and bird motions to simultaneously guide them around obstacles.
A flight research project that put a 21st century twist on a century-old technology -- a high-tech derivative of the Wright brothers' wing-warping method of controlling an aircraft's turning ability -- can be summed up in two words: "It works!"
The National Society of Black Engineers will honor NASA aeronautical engineer Laurie Marshall with the 2005 Golden Torch Award for Outstanding Woman in Technology of the Year.
A U.S. Navy E-2C Hawkeye, a carrier-based electronics aircraft that serves as the eyes and ears of carrier battle groups, recently underwent structural loads tests at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center's Flight Loads Laboratory to determine if increasing the aircraft's gross weight will affect its performance.
On March 3, NASA marked the 90th anniversary of its predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), and the achievements of nearly a century of work in NASA's keystone discipline, aeronautics.
To help the Space Shuttle safely return to flight, NASA engineers are acquiring data on how insulating foam debris or "divots" behave when these small pieces are shed from the Shuttle's external fuel tank during launch.
A sleek, supersonic T-38 trainer jet is taxied into the parking ramp at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center by Dryden's chief pilot Gordon Fullerton.
An international team of scientists aboard NASA's DC-8 Flying Laboratory recently completed a three-week mission to improve modeling of global scale air quality and climate change predictions. The Polar Aura Validation Experiment (PAVE) took high quality measurements of the arctic region's atmosphere and gathered information to validate data from NASA's Aura satellite.
With a name like Starfighter, F-104s were destined to serve NASA in the extreme regime of high-speed flight research.
Conducting mock dogfights with neighborhood friends on bicycles as the children pretended they were flying jet fighters was one of Trong Bui's memories from his childhood in Vietnam.
A state-of-the-art solar array is providing a unique opportunity to demonstrate the latest in high-efficiency solar cells available for terrestrial use at a demonstration site at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.
Teachers from Edwards Middle School, a NASA Explorer School at Edwards Air Force Base, recently toured NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center.
As 2004 drew to a close, NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base looked back on a year of challenge and accomplishment in its role of NASA's lead center for atmospheric flight research.
The end of an era in aerospace history was marked Friday, Dec. 17, when NASA retired its venerable B-52B "mothership" heavy-lift launch aircraft.
NASA's DC-8 traveled to frosty Alaska in November to study active volcanoes, the Hubbard glacier, forests and sea ice. Using the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (AirSAR), digital elevation models were taken that will allow scientists to evaluate landscape changes and assess volcanic hazards.
Dryden is implementing an extensive wireless, sensor-based system aimed at improving the management of hazardous materials.
