Meet NASA’s Bug Team

There’s a team of researchers at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Virginia who are studying ways to prevent the remains of insect impacts from sticking to the wing of an aircraft in flight. Meet Mia Siochi and other members of the bug team who are testing different coatings to see which do the best job at preventing bug build-up and the resulting disruption of air flow that reduces fuel efficiency.
