NASA Takes Flight with BYU Student's Work


MR says: Check out the exciting work this BYU senior is doing building simulations for NASA!

Computer Science undergrad Andrew Wallace has some ideas for managing congested national air space, and NASA likes what they’ve seen so far from him. 

Using the LaGuardia Airport as his focus, Wallace is specifically studying the arrival spacing of aircrafts in the New York metroplex—the busiest in the world in terms of total flight operations. 

Wallace has been collaborating with NASA's Ames Research Center under the tutelage of BYU Computer Science professor Eric Mercer.
