NASA Researchers work on Fuel Additive that could reduce Jet Fuel Volatility

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Airplane accidents are especially dangerous because jet fuel is highly flammable under crash conditions. On impact, jet fuel is dispersed in the air as a fine mist, which triggers a sequence of events that can lead to a fire engulfing an entire plane.

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managed by Caltech, have been working on additives that inhibit the formation of this highly flammable mist during collisions. These additives are based on long molecules called polymers.

Collectively Dealing With Collective Trauma

 

warrior retreat resizeClarksville, TN – Jeffrey Alexander defines collective trauma as what occurs when members of a group have been subjected to a horrendous experience that forever marks and changes their identity (Streesland, 2005). The events of September 11th, 2001 have forever altered the American identity. Most young adults today (ages 18-25) have never experienced a commercial flight that did not involve intense security screening. Today, an 11-year old child growing up in the United States has no idea what it is like to live in a country that is not at war.
