  • Computer modeling could help reduce flight delays
    Computer automation could significantly help reduce delays from weather problems, says NASA’s NextGen Airspace Project investigator Parimal Kopardekar. Speaking at The Atlantic’s Big Science Summit in San Jose, California, Kopardekar noted that while the current system relies on manual assessment to try to work around weather, data from weather forecasts and sensors on planes could be fed into a computer to create a more precise model for decision making and reduce the workload for air traffic controllers.

More funding should be sent to airports in critical metro areas that serve as gateways for international passengers, and visa rules should be re-evaluated. "Why does it take so long to get a tourist visa for citizens in Brazil, India and other allies, especially considering they want to spend money on our shores?" they ask.
