MIT's Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel

This video includes footage of MIT Professors Judson R. Baron and Eugene E. Covert, pioneers in aeronautics. Filmed in 1997, during an AeroAstro historical presentation, they discuss the early days of MIT's state-of-the-art Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel, which investigated problems related to supersonic flight, and became an essential tool in the examination of aerospace, architectural, vehicular and other engineering systems.

For more information about the Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel, visit the AeroAstro website.
