Stephanie Kwolek 1923 - 2014

You may not be familiar with her face, but you're very familiar with her invention, poly-paraphenylene terephthalamide...

KEVLAR Inventor Stephanie Kwolek Dies At 90

What a great life's work.

RIP Ms. Kwolek

Cube - Good for her. We need more inventors like her to give us what we need to make the world a better and safer place.

Sue Hanes: We do need more like. Think of the lives she saved over the years. BTW Kevlar is also used in sports equipment, but there is no telling what other fields it will help.

I know all the cops love her just to name a few.

May she rest in eternal peace. ☺
