Abstract : A semi-technical discussion is given of phenomena connected with the interaction of a solid body with its medium at very high velocities. Topics include the increase of resistance (over classical aerodynamic resistance) due to vaporization and burning, the mantel of incandescent gases, and the effect of the electromagnetic properties of the body on resistance to its motion.
