GE Masterclass with Baratunde Thurston - How Does a Jet Engine Work?
Baratunde Thurston takes you behind the scenes at GE's Global Research Center to answer the question: How does a jet engine work? With the help of aerospace engineer Todd Wetzel, you'll see why "suck, squeeze, bang, blow" is a great way to talk about modern flight. From turbojets to turbofans, the two discuss how airplane engines have evolved to become the powerful, high-efficiency machines they are today. Join us for all of the GE Masterclass series, where you can discover how locomotives, wind turbines, and jet engines operate.
