A light-gas gun could be used for launching the test article as their development had progressed to provide reentry velocities but how to simulate the atmosphere at 100,000 feet where most of the aerodynamic heating takes place?
First, the high velocity of modern aircrafts give rise to an aerodynamic heating, which produce intense thermal stresses, reducing the strength of aircrafts structure.
But Prof Suzuki said: "Since the origami plane is very light, it can avoid serious aerodynamic heating without special heat protection tiles used in the space shuttle."
On descent, the twin rear stabilizers of the craft can be flipped to vertical orientation to add stability ad increase drag, helping to slow the vehicle while reducing aerodynamic heating and G-force buildup.
