Professor Emeritus Marshall Slemrod has been researching how the equations map to various type of conditions. “Navier-Stokes makes very good predictions for the air in the room,” said Slemrod, who presented the evidence last month in the journal *Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena*. But at high altitudes, and in other near-vacuum situations, “the equations become less and less accurate." Read more at https://www.quantamagazine.org/famous-fluid-equations-are-incomplete-20150721/
