Aerodynamics of the Enterprise?

From the world of the bizarre, or perhaps a world in which scientists do look like FAR SIDE drawings, comes this web site. They ran a model of the Enterprise (from STAR TREK) through a wind tunnel to see how it would handle the flow of gas around it. The results are interesting, if ultimately pointless.

    My favorite line, “…this test was a simulation of the flight of the Enterprise where the Mach number of the flow is analogous to the Warp speed of the vehicle.”

    Wha???
