Aerospace engineering is the discipline that deals with the design, construction, analysis and maintenance of aircraft and spacecraft. Aerospace engineers calculate and compute the effects of speed, pressure and gravity on vehicles that are used in the Earth's atmosphere and beyond. Wolfram|Alpha allows you to explore various properties of aircraft, spacecraft and rockets, satellites and space probes, and more.
