Weird & Wonderful random maths fact πŸ‘€

Mathematicians at NASA πŸš€ who simulate the flow of fluids through space rocket engines, have helped to develop a heart pump which can keep patients alive while waiting for a heart transplant ❀️

Just as they model the flow of fuel through the engines of NASA rockets, these mathematicians are able to model blood flow through these pumps (using fluid dynamics!). In doing this they found a way to adapt the design of the pump to reduce the amount of damage to red blood cells as well as the chance of blood clots forming.πŸ‘πŸ»
