ARTICLE: NASA to Feed Jet Engine Crayons… For Science

Great credit to the NASA engineers, who have found that crayons make a very useful substance to be ingested in engines. They are being used to assess the impact of foreign objects on the turbines. One application is to determine strategies for dealing with future volcanic ash being spewed into the atmosphere. The crayons create data on sensors and the engineers will assess the “colorful” numbers to help with future engine designs and/or operational procedures.
