There’s something extraordinary about the buildings of MIT. It’s a campus numbering perhaps a half-dozen dozen architectural specimens that span a healthy 150 years and all manner of styles, from the concrete columns of yore to the sleek metal and glass facades of today.
Now that I’m working I don’t get to attend many open lectures within the walls – they’re primarily daytime events – but today I figured I’d grab a long walk and headed over. At one point a beefy car ripped by me with a 20ft aerodynamic, submarine-like trailer. Something about aeronautics was written on it.
A minute later I passed by this MIT stalwart of science, the white orb of windiness. Really just a two-story bulbous structure, which I faintly remember being labeled as the school’s wind tunnel. If I knew what wind sounded like in letters, I’d type it. Airplane trailer guy was parked behind it.
