1988 flight of Daedalus is subject of Archives exhibit

The Daedalus in flight
In the 1980s MIT students and faculty members embarked on an exploration of human-powered flight. The August Object of the Month exhibit of the Institute Archives and Special Collections describes the project that produced the Daedalus, in which Kanellos Kanellopoulos made the record-breaking flight from Crete to Santorin in 1988. The records of Project Daedalus are available for research in the Archives reading room, Building 14N-118.
