Skunk Works

As much as this book is about the incredible objects of military might produced by Lockheed’s Skunk Works, the core story is about the power of engineering and innovation. It’s the story of how a thermodynamicist can change the course of history with engine intakes that work efficiently at mach 3. It is the story of ideas from a single engineer becoming the spark that produces a plane invisible to radar and it is the story of a company that gave engineers and innovators free reign to develop the next great thing.
