Learn about aerodynamics and apply it to the joy you will feel as a free-falling skydiver in this educational tour that includes demonstrations, activities, and two free-fall flight experiences in the iFLY wind tunnel. Apply the iFLY experience to design a method that will softly land a spacecraft traveling through the Martian atmosphere to its surface.
This tour for students and adults includes an interactive STEM program that uses the state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel at iFLY. The tour experience continues at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel for an educational program where you'll learn about and experience what a free-falling spacecraft would encounter on entry into an atmosphere like Mars!
