Learn about  the people, the ideas and the technology that are driving the revolutionary work done by the first “A” in NASA –NASA Aeronautics.  A free webinar series for university faculty and students, NASA Aeronautics: Aviation at The Leading Edge, is being offered this fall as a partnership between NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate and the National Space Grant program. 

The series features three, one-hour programs in which NASA researchers talk about their current work to design and engineer the next great aviation transformations, from the return of supersonic flight, to managing drones in urban air spaces and the emergence of electrified aircraft. NASA Space Grant directors will serve as program moderators.   Participants will be able to submit questions during the live programs which are:
