Thought NASA was all about space travel? Think again.

Did you know that the number one goal of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate of NASA is to revolutionise aviation and enable a safe, environmentally-friendly expansion of aviation? The first objective in this goal is to increase safety by reducing the aircraft accident rate by a factor of five within 10 years, and by a factor of 10 within 25 years.
