Aviation in the Age of Revolution
Dr. Jaiwon Shin
Thursday, 30 November 2017, 5pm to 7pm
Maths Institute Lecture Theatre 1 Oxford OX2 6GG
NASA…It’s not just about space...
Our lives are changing like never-before. They’re being shaped by new technologies that fuse the physical, digital and biological worlds converging to create the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ and are set to change things on the ground, and in the air .
Dr. Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, will talk about how this emerging reality is driving projects such as how we use experimental aircraft to test advanced technologies that could transform how we fly, such as commercial super-sonic planes, the technologies that can be part of an automated system for safe traffic management of drones, and new ways of using data from research to create a system that brings a favourite of science-fiction closer to science-fact, the ability to fly instead of drive, on demand through and around our cities.
Plus, from 5pm come and explore some of the exciting research from the University in our discover zone! This is the perfect opportunity to ask question's to our researchers and find out what's being developed in the future. This talk is aimed at ages 16+
