If you want to get into space (or to the sky), you must
start by getting off the ground successfully. There is little room for error in the aerospace industry, given the risk involved and the effort put into flight. Ultrasonic inspection methods (high frequency sound waves) are utilized to ensure the quality of aircraft components in a nondestructive
manner. Come and learn how the propagation of sound through a material can give you a look at internal
structure and help identify flaws and potential failure points.
