Home This system of fans moves air through the world’s largest wind tunnels, at the National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Complex at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley. Each of the six fans is 40 feet in diameter and is driven by a 22,500-horsepower electric motor. Two figures near fan 5 give a sense of scale.

A model of the Space Launch System rocket covered in a thin coat of pink, pressure-sensitive paint is mounted in a wind tunnel at NASA’s Ames Research Center. The high-tech paint acts as a pressure sensor covering the entire surface of the rocket during tests simulating its launch to space. (NASA/Ames Research Center/Dominic Hart)
