Abstract

AERONAUTICAL research is now firmly established in Australia. Nevertheless, many people, including a large proportion of Australians, may well wonder why a country which derives the major part of its wealth from primary products should expend large sums on an activity apparently unrelated to its economy. Thus it will not be out of place to begin with some of the relevant background.
