Luca Maddalena and Luca Massa
Aerospace engineering Assistant Professors Luca Maddalena and Luca Massa have received a three-year NASA National Research Award to study novel injector designs to support combustion at hypersonic speeds. Their exploration aims to reduce air travel times and make space access more affordable. Drs. Maddalena and Massa are the only two collegiate researchers in the nation to garner the hypersonic grant.
