Baked Alaska

Henry Royce Picture

Have you ever wondered what jet engines, baked Alaska and sustainability have in common? 

Discover how materials science and engineering enables us to achieve more efficient flight by allowing the core of jet engines to reach very high temperatures. Components at the core of jet engines are protected by thin ceramic coating, preventing these components from melting. This is similar to what happens when making a Baked Alaska: the meringue prevents the ice cream from melting!
