A co-worker of mine asked me a very thought-provoking question. It seems his son gets extra credit if he can to answer this question correctly. "Why is silk used on the nose of the Concorde?" A few of our theories involve anti-static properties, heat dissipation, radar compatability, and erosion resistance. Can anyone answer this one with proof? Not looking for WAG's or suppositions. Please reply directly to this address. Galen H.
