Julie Kramer White Purdue's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics Graduates Play Key Role in NASA's Orion Program
On December 5, 2014, people around the world watched with excitement and fascination as NASA successfully launched the Orion spacecraft. The test flight mission, lasting almost four and a half hours, took a spacecraft further into space than any manned vehicle since the Apollo missions over forty years ago. The crowd gathered to view the Orion launch in the early morning hours at Kurz Atrium in Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering was reminded yet again of the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ enormous contributions to space exploration.
Dr. Alton Romig Dr. Thomas Beutner (BSAAE'87; OAE'07) and Dr. Alton Romig selected as AIAA Fellows
Congratulations to Dr. Thomas Beutner (BSAAE'87; OAE'07) and Dr. Alton D. Romig on their selection by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) in the 2015 Class of AIAA Fellows and Honorary Fellows. They will be honored at an induction ceremony on May 6, 2015 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
AAE 450 Students with Dr. Aldrin Dr. Buzz Aldrin, Gemini and Apollo astronaut, continues collaboration with School of AAE's Dr. Longuski and students
As a part of ongoing collaborations, Gemini and Apollo astronaut, Dr. Buzz Aldrin was in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics to interact with Professor James Longuski's students. Dr. Aldrin spent time with the Advanced Astrodynamics Concepts research group and the students in the senior design course, AAE 450.
Dr. Melosh-Dr. Minton Research by Dr. Jay Melosh and Dr. David Minton, School of AAE professors by courtesy, examines meteorite material born in molten spray as embryo planets collided
Research done at Purdue University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology suggests collisions of planetary embryos--the seeds to the planets in our solar system that existed 4 billion years ago--could be the origin of the material that formed asteroids. Dr. Jay Melosh and Dr. David Minton, School of Aeronautics and Astronautics professors by courtesy, say the next step in the research may be to explore how this chondrule formation mechanism fits into a new model for the early stages of planet formation.
Dr. Yu and Team School of AAE Professors part of $259M partnership aiming to advance manufacturing research
The multistate Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation includes the Indiana-based Design, Modeling and Simulation Enabling Technology Center at Purdue University. Team leaders at Purdue includes School of Aeronautics and Astronautics professors Wenbin Yu, associate professor; R. Byron Pipes, engineering professor who is leading Purdue's research; Johnathan Goodsell, visiting assistant professor; and Ronald Steuterman, the center's managing director.
