|Hot idea to cool down
Imagine getting energy from the diesel exhaust of 18-wheelers, or an environment free of diesel or heat pollution. For most mortals, this would seem hard to fathombut not for Craig Christy.
A Boeing engineer based at Huntington Beach, Calif., Christy spends his
"free" time hot on the trail of a new way to cool things down. Christy
is working toward a new way to refrigerate the hundreds of thousands of
truck trailers that carry food goods and other precious essentials, crisscrossing
the world's highways day and night.
IN GOOD COMPANY
If your name is going to be eternally linked with others, it's nice to be in good company, and this is definitely good company: Neil Armstrong, Charles Lindbergh, Wernher von Braun, Amelia Earhart, Chuck Yeager and the Wright Brothers.
They are just a few of the many illustrious aviation pioneers whom Frank Piasecki recently joined as a member of the National Aviation Hall of Fame.
Piasecki, a trailblazer in the development of helicopters, was born in 1919. He became fascinated at an early age with aviation technology, which at the time was an exciting new field.
