    The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) is a private research university in Pasadena, was founded as a preparatory and vocational school by Amos G. Throop in and began attracting influential scientists such as George Ellery Hale, Arthur Amos Noyes and Robert Andrews Millikan in the early 20th century. The vocational and preparatory schools were disbanded and spun. The institute's research facilities, principally in science and engineering, include the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (operated in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration), the Palomar Observatory, the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory, and a cosmic ray laboratory. With the Univ. of California at Berkeley and the Univ.

    The Josephine de Karman Fellowship Trust was established in by the late Dr. Theodore von Karman, world renowned aeronautics expert and teacher and first director of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, in memory of his sister, Josephine, who died in aeronautical research to various universities such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the California Institute of Technology. In addition, there is material dealing with the fund's program of increasing public interest in aviation, such as the subsidizing of Charles A. .

    The Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology began sounding rockets experiments under Theodore von Karman. The Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering boasts one of the oldest and largest aerospace programs in the country. Whether you want to build and fly all types of aircraft or dream of going into space, the School's focus on problem-solving can propel you into a rewarding career with many top aerospace firms and government-research labs. Students in this program learn the fundamentals of.

A classic, historical report--one of the very first--from the then-new Jet Propulsion Laboratory of Guggenheim Aeronautical Lab at Cal Tech (GALCIT). Pulsejet engine theory, based upon investigations of the German V-1 cruise missile. Very hard to find and now long out-of-print. For many, many years this report remained “Restricted” and very Author: California Institute of Technology (GALCIT) Daniel Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory.

The Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT), was a research institute created inat first specializing in aeronautics research. InHungarian scientist Theodore von Kármán accepted the directorship of the lab and emigrated to the United States.

Under his leadership, work on rockets began there in The institute was founded and funded by industrialist Daniel Guggenheim inin cooperation with the University of Akron and the California Institute of Technology. Much of the inspiration for the project was the fact that two huge Navy airships, the Akron and the Macon, were about to be constructed at the nearby airdock.

Chief historian of the Air Force, Richard P. Hallion, in his book about the Guggenheim contributions to aviation, stated that the major accomplishment of the competition was that it formulated the requirements for the short-take-off-and-landing (STOL) aircraft long before many in the aeronautical community realized such a need existed.
