In the past, Olympic ski jumpers typically only had 3 to 4 seconds to practice their form and perfect their mid-air aerodynamics. Physics Professor Adam Johnston, explains how, with the help of a wind tunnel, U.S. ski jumpers can fine tune the physics of their jumps along with the flow of air around their bodies in order to attain Olympic gold.
