Langley Tests Dream Chaser's Thermal Dynamics

NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., conducted hypersonic testing of Dream Chaser models for Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) to obtain necessary data for the material selection and design of the spacecraft's thermal protection system (TPS). The wind tunnel tests are meant to reduce risk and improve the reliability of the Dream Chaser TPS during SNC's agreements with NASA's Commercial Crew Program (CCP) during the Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) initiative.
