In this episode of NASA Now, Sam James explains why NASA engineers build model aircraft. James talks about how models are tested in wind tunnels and why it’s important to create models that are proportional to full-scale aircraft. He discusses why models are an inexpensive alternative to full-scale aircraft during the redesigning stage of the engineering design process.This program is available on the Virtual Campus beginning May 30.Preview of NASA Now: Model Aircraft
