We Freeze to Please
Flying out of Cleveland in a snowstorm New Year's night, I was grateful for my father's work on de-icing technologies at NASA. A few years ago my dad was interviewed for a book on the ice tunnel at NASA's Lewis (now Glenn) Research Center. The book, We Freeze to Please, is also available as a PDF, here. On p. 70 (82 in the pdf) there's a photo of my dad in 1949, standing on top of a large ladder with a "spray system for dyed water impingement studies."
