Memory Metals Are Shaping The Evolution Of Aviation

Functional Metal With Unique Properties Can Be Trained To Move On Its Own

In the basement of the Materials and Structures Laboratory at NASA’s Glenn Research Center, a shining machine stands so tall it punches a hole through the drop-out ceiling tiles. It has a robust composition of steel pillars and thick metal plates surrounded by wires, dials and knobs. Together, these provide the structure to test a very slight metal rod, no longer than six inches. It seems like quite the production to hold something so minuscule, but this little metal rod is made of a material called shape-memory alloy—and it’s changing the future of flight.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (11.17.19)

Aero Linx: The Southwest Navion Air Group The Southwest Navion Air Group originated in 1971 as the Southwest Navioneers.  Over time the members began referring to themselves as the Southwest Navion Air Group and thus SNAG was born.  Many years later a lot of our members were living in the Southeast region of the United States and thus the name was changed to Southern Navion Air Group to better represent our geography. In general, our goal is to get together, have fun, share information and fly with Navion owners and those who genuinely love Navions. We accomplish this goal primarily through regularly scheduled SNAG "Fly-Ins" throughout the year, and publishing a monthly SNAG Newsletter. The fly-ins routinely begin with arrival on Friday followed by a casual evening social. Saturday's (weather permitting) begin with the traditional "Dawn Patrol" of Navions and flying events such as spot landing competitions, balloon busting and flour bombing. Sometimes, there a

ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it... so we came up with the idea of News Spies.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (11.17.19)

"CRISM spotted carbonates here years ago, but we only recently noticed how concentrated they are right where a lakeshore would be. We're going to encounter carbonate deposits in many locations throughout the mission, but the bathtub ring will be one of the most exciting places to visit." Source: Briony Horgan of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. the lead author of a paper published in the journal Icarus that identifies distinct deposits of minerals called carbonates along the inner rim of Jezero, the site of a lake more than 3.5 billion years ago. On Earth, carbonates help form structures that are hardy enough to survive in fossil form for billions of years, including seashells, coral and some stromatolites - rocks formed on this planet by ancient microbial life along ancient shorelines, where sunlight and water were plentiful.

ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it. Fortunately for us, we realized early on we couldn't be everywhere at once -- curse the laws of physics! -- so we came up with the idea of News-Spies. Just as the title suggests, a News-Spy is a reader who notices a news item -- be it in the newspaper, on television, or something they came across at their own airport, town hall, at the office water cooler or just by walking down the street -- basically, any item a reader may think is newsworthy, that pertains to the world of aviation.
