Al Bowers talks about his work the Prandtl Wing

This video and introduction were taken from Milton Hare's Facebook page. I have known and worked with Al Bowers while spending the last five summers at NASA-AFRC.

Description: "
This may be the most current recorded talk by Al about his Prandtl wing work. Hopefully he has a talk recorded where he had plenty of time to explain everything because for most people this is - advanced.
It’s so revolutionary (ignored since 1933) that it will take absolute proof before many conventional thinkers are willing to accept it.
They used his fan design on ISS which was quiet and more efficient - that might be the first production use.

Stability and control have been absolutely proven, now efficiency needs to be measured in various applications and once people see dollar signs big things will start happening."

TED Talk by Katie Bouman

At the heart of the Milky Way, there's a supermassive black hole that feeds off a spinning disk of hot gas, sucking up anything that ventures too close -- even light. We can't see it, but its event horizon casts a shadow, and an image of that shadow could help answer some important questions about the universe. Scientists used to think that making such an image would require a telescope the size of Earth -- until Katie Bouman and a team of astronomers came up with a clever alternative. Bouman explains how we can take a picture of the ultimate dark using the Event Horizon Telescope.
