My name is Henley Mullins. I am a grade 7 student at St Bonaventure's College in eastern Newfoundland. My interests include tinkering and rockets (following SpaceX). I am also an avid reader, play the string bass and love the outdoors. I want to be a mechanical engineer when I grow up. I believe that SpaceX and other private space companies will lead humanity into the future of space.

Rockets are Such a Drag
Region:Eastern Newfoundland
City:St Johns, NL
School:St. Bonaventure's College
Abstract:The project compared the aerodynamic efficiency of three rockets (Falcon Heavy, Space Launch System and New Glenn). A wind tunnel was built that could test 3D-printed model rockets at speeds of up to 30 kilometers per hour. Drag force was measured and the aerodynamic drag coefficient was calculated.
