How Things Fly

"Have you ever wanted to know how an airplane flies? Or why you become 'weightless' in space? These and many other questions are answered in the How Things Fly Web site, a companion to the physical exhibition at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Our goal is to explain the basic principles that allow aircraft and spacecraft to fly."
