A spaceship has landed at Purdue. Boeing donated a model of its X-20 Dyna-Soar Hypersonic Space Plane to the university. A dedication ceremony was held Friday afternoon at Armstrong Hall.
The X-20 Dyna-Soar was a one-man, piloted, space glider created in the late 1950s, but it never flew.
Dean of Engineering Leah Jamieson says it still contributed to the U.S. space program.
"It provided significant engineering technology and advancements that contributed to the future of spacecraft, including the Space Shuttle."
