Video Title:
The SR-71 Blackbird - STEM in 30
Description:
Built of titanium, the SR-71 Blackbird is the world's fastest jet-propelled aircraft. The Blackbird's performance and operational achievements placed it at the pinnacle of aviation technology developments during the Cold War. In this episode of STEM in 30 we feature the SR-71 Blackbird on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and explore why it was so important for reconnaissance. This program is made possible through the generous support of the International Titanium Association. See more from STEM in 30: airandspace.si.edu/stemin30
