Cela fait à peine plus d’un siècle que les avions volent. Et, de fait, le vol défie souvent l’intuition de l’animal terrestre que nous sommes. Comment vole un avion et comment éviter qu’il échappe au contrôle du pilote ? Jusqu’où peut-il s’élever dans le ciel ? Autant de questions auxquelles ce MOOC s’efforcera de répondre avec passion, simplicité et rigueur scientifique, en s’appuyant sur des explications visuelles, des mises en situation réalistes, des simulations et en se limitant au formalisme mathématique accessible à un élève de terminale scientifique.
