Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre gets a new trisonic wind tunnel


The first blow-down test for the new trisonic wind tunnel at the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) was successfully completed on Thursday.


The enormous structure gives the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) a powerful internal support system for space missions and the ability to conduct experiments in three speed regimes. According to the VSSC, it is a significant step toward national aeronautical self-sufficiency.</
