Event description

Description

Join Associate Professor Andrew Neely from UNSW Canberra for the second instalment in the Questacon Air & Space Speaker Series. Andrew will be giving an exciting presentation about the Science of (Very) High Speed Flight!

In just over 113 years we have developed from a world where powered, controlled flight was the stuff of dreams to a time where regular supersonic flight, space tourism and interplanetary exploration, long the stuff of science fiction, is now a reality. Andrew will be talking about both some recent achievements in ground-based research and flight-testing and some of the challenges that lie ahead.

Attend this event and receive a complimentary single entry into Questacon. Visit during opening hours before 23 July 2017 and explore the blockbuster aviation and aerospace exhibition – Above and Beyond presented by Boeing.

This event is suitable for ages 14 and above.

Andrew Neely is an aerospace engineer with a passion for STEM outreach. He graduated with a PhD in hypersonics from the University of Queensland and then performed jet engine research for Rolls-Royce at the University of Oxford before returning to Australia. Andrew now leads a research group at UNSW Canberra improving the design and performance of hypersonic vehicles. He has collaborated on a number of large international hypersonic test-flight programs including the current HEXAFLY-International project, led by the European Space Agency and the Australian-US HIFiRE program led by the Defence Science Technology Group. Andrew is currently President of the Australian Division of the Royal Aeronautical Society and he runs a STEM outreach program – Cool Aeronautics.
