|A Boeing 757-200 aircraft obtained by NASA in 1994 is now serving as a "flying laboratory" for aeronautical research. The aircraft is being modified extensively for a broad range of flight research programs in the next 20 years to benefit the U.S. aviation industry and commercial airline customers. Called ARIES, or Airborne Research Integrated Experiments System, the aircraft is being used to c...||10/08/2007||325|
|The General Dynamics F-16XL is a derivative of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, with a cranked-arrow delta wing that is over twice the size of that of the standard F-16 wing. It was entered in the U.S. Air Force's Enhanced Tactical Fighter (ETF) competition but ultimately lost to the F-15E Strike Eagle. Several years after the prototypes were shelved, they were turned over to NASA for aeronautical stu...||10/08/2007||401|
|This in-flight view of NASA's two-seat F-16XL #2 research aircraft clearly shows that the left and right wings are definitely not mirror images of each other. Nevertheless, pilots who have flown the highly modified aircraft at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Califronia, state that the asymmetry created by modifications to its left wing for the Supersonic Laminar Flow Control (SLF...||04/10/2007||2,443|

|"Out of Bounds" was created in 1992 by Los Angeles artist Lloyd Hamrol. It is comprised of seven, ten-foot high independent modular forms representing soccer balls. These forms are scattered throughout Avery Park in a random fashio like balls out of bounds. The enite park becomes the sculpture, with multiple focal points. The sculpture directly related to the ise of the park, which is used for ...||08/23/2007||349|
|The southern facility at Edwards was formerly home to the B-2 test team when the Northrop stealth bomber was undergoing flight testing at Edwards AFB. Early on in the program, the USAF wanted to try and keep the exact details of the B-2's planform secret. While the aircraft was publicly unveiled at Palmdale, it was only shown from the front and side and the upper surfaces were not visible. This...||10/03/2009||502|
|Vomit Comet is a nickname for any airplane that briefly provides a nearly weightless environment in which to train astronauts, conduct research, and film motion pictures. Versions of such airplanes have in the past been operated by NASA's Reduced Gravity Research Program since 1973, where the nickname originated. NASA prefers the nickname Weightless Wonder for public relations reasons. |
