LAE researchers collaborating with Delta to prevent persistent contrails

MIT researchers in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment partner with Delta to prevent the climate warming effect of contrails. The focus of the study is how to eliminate persistent contrails, which make up about 10% of all contrails and which create clouds that trap heat and warm the earth, according to Delta.
