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.
