NASA Software Leads to Fuel Savings For Airlines

Software developed at NASA's Ames Research Center is enabling fuel savings for airlines while also increasing their planes' environmental efficiency.

The Ames Direct-To software is a product of NASA aeronautics research in air traffic management. It enables airlines to save fuel and reduce emissions by automatically identifying flight shortcuts that are wind-favorable and acceptable to air traffic controllers.

It's already been adopted by the Boeing Company for commercial use. Their offering a new air traffic efficiency service that uses the software.

Project directors say they've estimated a potential combined savings of about 900 flying minutes per day for all aircraft using the software. That means a potential savings of tens of thousands of flight minutes per year for a medium-sized airline.

NASA Microgravity Experiments

NASA will host two national science competitions that challenge students - six through 12 - to develop and prepare a microgravity experiment.

Both competitions are open to teams across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and they can be formed from any type of organization or club, such as a science class, a group of friends, or youth group, and each team must have an adult advisor.

A panel of NASA scientists and engineers will evaluate and select the best proposals by December first. The winning teams will design and build experiments that will be conducted in the 2.2 Second Drop Tower at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland. When an experiment is "dropped" into the 79-foot tower, it experiences weightlessness for 2.2 seconds.

The top four teams get an all-expenses-paid trip to conduct their experiments with NASA personnel.
