Episode 3 – Wings Without Birds
Dec 18 16
Scott Dawson, a former sixth-year Princeton student in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department, stopped by the show eight days before his dissertation defense to tell us about how the way birds flap their wings may influence how planes and cars are designed, why golf balls have dimples, and if Arnold Schwarzenneger could have been the first human to take flight (during the Terminator days, obviously.)
ALSO: Scott makes cool videos about his work! Check out this one he recently presented at a conference here: http://gfm.aps.org/meetings/dfd-2014/541751a969702d585c3d0300
