Picturing Innovation

On View

October 7, 2017 — March 11, 2018

Located in

Past Exhibition

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA, the Chrysler Museum mined the agency’s photographic archive, selecting pictures that highlight its rich history.

With more than 100 images, the exhibition depicts many of Langley’s pioneering innovations—from pilots testing experimental planes, to engineers operating the facility’s famous wind tunnels, to astronauts preparing to take the first steps on the moon.

A tribute to Langley’s advancements in aviation, atmospheric understanding, and extraterrestrial exploration, Picturing Innovation explores how photographs not only document innovations but also launch them ahead.

The exhibition is on view in the Frank Photography Galleries and Focus Gallery (G. 228-299) through March 11, 2018. Admission is free.

Langley's First Wind Tunnel, ca. 1920 The honeycombed, screened center of this open-circuit air intake for Langley's first wind tunnel ensured a steady, non-turbulent flow of air. Two mechanics pose near the entrance end of the actual tunnel, where air was pulled into the test section through a honeycomb arrangement to smoothen the flow. Courtesy NASA Langley Research Center
