Various plasma wind tunnels have been built for developing reusable space transportation systems and space probes entering the atmospheres of celestial bodies. All together they cover almost the whole reentry trajectory of a space craft. They generate continuous plasma flows of high specific enthalpy and velocity with thermal or magnetoplasmadynamic generators. Plasma wind tunnels are used for:(1) Development and qualification of radiation and ablative cooling materials and thermal protection systems (2) Validation of numerical codes for reentry prediction (3) Development and qualification of reentry measurement devices
