September 1, 1955: An engineer examines the main compressor for the 10- by 10-Foot Supersonic Wind Tunnel at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory.

  1. We still use this wind tunnel at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. It can only run at certain times of day, the power draw required to run the compressors could overload the power grid if it's turned on during peak demand.

  2. I feel like I read somewhere that the prints for this have been lost and it would be almost impossible to recreate, or something along those lines. IIRC it had to do with the wooden blades and how they were built specifically. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
