Summary
COI synopsis: In this issue we take a closer look at the medium that’s so much around us we forget it’s there... air: what we can do with it; and what it can do to us. Measuring precisely the movements of air where no other instrument could go: behind a flying aircraft; in the exhaust of a jet engine... measurements to make travelling by air that much safer.
