AAE 41800 - Zero-Gravity Flight Experiment


Credit Hours: 3.00. Team-based design-build-test engineering experience to maximize the benefits of student participation in the NASA Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunity Program (or similar). Gravity, orbits, and weightlessness. Low-gravity capillary fluid physics, scaling laws, and components. Experiment design for multiple short zero gravity test times. Technical proposal writing, design for manufacturability, experiment fabrication, planning, testing, and execution. Typically offered Fall.
