XCOR Lynx: Aerodynamics — Sub-sonic wind tunnel model assembly


Engineer Mark Street assembles a sub-sonic wind tunnel model Lynx, which was used at the U.S. Air Force test facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio.

In addition to computer modeling with computational fluid dynamics, wind tunnel models provide the necessary real-world data that together informs the final shape of the vehicle. We will cover all of these topics and more in the near future.

Tomorrow we cover some questions from the week, and update you a bit later on where you can find us on the road.
