NASA astronaut, aerospace engineer, military officer and engineering executive Guion S. Bluford, Jr., was born on November 22, 1942 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He received his B.A. degree from Pennsylvania State University and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Air Force Institute of Technology, each in aerospace engineering. After completing U.S. Air Force training in 1966, Bluford flew 144 combat missions in Southeast Asia as an F4C fighter pilot and trained future Air Force and West German fighter pilots as a T-38 instructor pilot. Bluford was selected for the austronaut program in 1978, interrupting his work as branch chief in the Air Force Flight Dynamics Laboratory. He was the first African American to fly in space, and to return for his second, third, and fourth visits. He logged more than 688 hours in space. In 1993, Bluford retired from NASA and the U.S. Air Force to become a senior aerospace industry executive

A numerical solution of supersonic and hypersonic viscous flow fields around thin planar delta wings : final report by Guion Stewart Bluford( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A numerical technique was used to compute the supersonic and hypersonic, viscous flow fields around thin planar delta wings. These solutions were obtained by solving the Navier-Stokes equations subject to a conical approximation. The integration technique used was the MacCormack finite-difference scheme. Solutions were obtained for the upper-only, lower-only, and total flow fields around delta wings with supersonic leading edges
