What has less drag, a smooth surface or one with imperfections such as rivit heads or seams?
Hear the Voice of Charles E. Tayor
One of my favorite podcasts is “The Naked Scientists” produced in the UK. The July 22, 2012 podcast just released is entirely about the history of aviation. Charlie Taylor built the early Wright engines including the first one to fly in 1903. He is honored as the worlds first Aviation Mechanic. Much of the podcast covers the development of engines for flight. Lots of cool information on jet engines. Early in the podcast a surpise; a short clip of Charles Tayor speaking.
Home website of “The Naked Scientists” with many excellent science and engineering podcasts.
Home of the Wright Experience where you can hear and see 85 year old Charlie Taylor.
