SpaceRef had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Scott Hubbard at the 28th National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs. Dr. Hubbard is professor of aeronautics and astronautics at Stanford University. He has been engaged in space-related research, as well as program, project and executive management for more than 35 years, including 20 years with NASA, culminating as director of NASA's Ames Research Center. In our conversation we talk about Scott's new book Exploring Mars, Chronicles from a Decade of Discovery, his shaping of the Mars program, the current state of planetary science and cuts to the Mars budget. As well Scott discusses work at Stanford including advances in hybrid propulsion, the FAA Center of Excellence at Stanford and much more.+ More details

NASA Ames Aeromechanics Branch Chief Bill Warmbrodt talks about the NASA Ames Research Center's Wind Tunnels -- including the world's largest Wind Tunnel. A Wind Tunnel is a tool used in aerodynamic research to study the effect of air moving past solid objects. wind tunnel consists of a closed tubular passage with the object under test mounted in the middle. A powerful fan system moves air past the object; the fan must have straightening vanes to smooth the airflow. The test object is instrumented with a sensitive balance to measure the forces generated by airflow; or, the airflow may have smoke or other substances injected to make the flow lines around the object visible.
