About Me

Richard Morgan has been the Director of the Centre for Hypersonics at The University of Queensland since its inception in 1997. He developed the superorbital expansion tube concept that enables flows at speeds of up to 50,000 km/h to be generated. Richard is an expert in modelling and testing the influences of radiation of the hot flows that occur in the bow waves of vehicles entering the atmospheres of the earth, other planets and moons.
