I learned a few years ago from the 2015 Houston Aeronautics Symposium I attended that Aeronautics was a big word with a large scope. It did not only mean learning how to fly but also understanding why planes fly and the art of flying appropriately into the air. Source: en.wikipedia.org The field of aeronautics is […]
Taking a journey away from your homeland can make you excited and at the same time anxious, the same with the idea of taking a flight away from mother Earth. Separation anxiety, feeling like you want to jump out of the vehicle and just come back, can jeopardize space mission. Even the multi-million dollar space […]
There is a reason why there is still no confirmed presence of life outside of Earth. Space is a hostile environment inimical to life. Conditions are widely different from those found here on Earth, so scientists and engineers have to remove some preconceived notions applicable only here on the planet when designing aerospace equipment.
Compared to other professional groups, pilots are unique when it comes to their working conditions and possible causes of stress. And these differences, together with the career structure and regulatory framework, can have a great impact on their mental health.
Space is an exotic environment, utterly different from conditions here on Earth. There is almost no atmosphere, radiation levels are much higher, and there is a real risk of getting hit by debris traveling at supersonic speeds.

Aerospace engineers play an important role when it comes to the advancement and development of spacecraft, aircraft, missiles and satellites. They also focus on how to improve flight safety and fuel efficiency while minimizing environmental impact and operational costs.
There are five main ways that rocket engines are powered. They can be powered physically, chemically, electrically or by using either thermal or nuclear energy. Among these, chemically powered rocket engine is one of the more popular types.
The aerospace industry is unique in terms of what it looks for in materials, with the oil and gas industry being the closest. Since aircrafts need to be able to resist the force of gravity while maximizing air support, aerospace materials need to be lightweight but strong. At the same time, they need to be resistant to heat, […]
