Episode 260 zum Thema Langstreckensegelflug. Unser Gast ist Alexander Müller.

http://omegataupodcast.net/260-tausender-in-deutschland-mit-dem-segelflugzeug/

Segelfliegern ist Alexander Müller ein Begriff: er ist dafür bekannt dass er regelmäßig Flüge von 1.000 km oder mehr von Bayreuth aus fliegt (Alexander’s Flüge 2017, 2016 und 2015). Während meines Urlaubs dieses Jahr in Bayreuth hatte ich die Gelegenheit mich mit ihm über diese Fliegerei zu unterhalten. Wir sprechen über seine fliegerischen Anfänge, die EB-29, Streckenplanung, Flugtaktik und Wetterberichte.

I just published episode 258, it's on the technology and history of spy satellites. My guest was David Baker.

http://omegataupodcast.net/258-the-history-and-technology-of-spy-satellites/

In this episode we speak with David Baker, who wrote a fascinating book about spy satellites. We cover the political and military context that drove their development, their (known and suspected) capabilities, methods of recovering the images, as well as typical orbits and the sartellites’ ability to change that orbit for quick repositioning.

Grade eine schöne Episode beim BGI aufgenommen. Als Fortsetzung zu 205, Geophysik. Das schlechte Wetter in Bayreuth sinnvoll genutzt :-)

Episode 257 concludes the recordings from the my trip to the US earlier this year; we discuss fullscale flight reserarch at NASA Armstrong:

http://omegataupodcast.net/257-flight-research-at-nasa-armstrong-part-2-fullscale/

As part of my trip to the US earlier this year I visited NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base. I conducted six interviews over two days, those concerning full scale (“real”) aircraft are in this episode. We start out with Kevin Weinert, with whom we talk about the Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge project, essentially a flap made of flexible materials to save fuel and reduce noise. Next up is Jim Less, one of NASA’s F-15 and F-18 pilots; we chat about his flying and various research projects where the jets are utilized (you can see this part as a continuation of Episode 73, where we chatted with Dick Ewers). Finally, we talk about flying the MQ-9 and RQ-4 unmanned aerial vehicles with the pilots Scott Howe and Hernan Posada.
