ISRO commissions world’s third largest hypersonic wind tunnel

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) created history by commissioning the world’s third largest hypersonic wind tunnel at the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

A wind tunnel is used to study the effects of air flowing past a solid object—in ISRO’s case, space vehicles. ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar has also commissioned two facilities—a one-metre Hypersonic Wind Tunnel and a one-metre Shock Tunnel, recently.
