Celeb Street Style: Vanessa Hudgens
His propellant bonding process improved safety for individuals using rockets and missiles. The Navy applied the process to submarine-based missiles in order to prevent those devices from prematurely detonating and killing crews and damaging crafts. His techniques were appropriated to aerospace engineering, particularly rockets launching spacecraft, including the space shuttle, to reduce propellant- related accidents. The full impact of Sampson’s propellant-related inventions is unclear because of the secrecy associated with their use. Sampson’s gamma-electric cell proved useful as a radiation detector. Nuclear reactor employees used the GEC to monitor radiation levels. Government personnel appropriated Sampson’s GEC to assess how much radiation resulted from nuclear weapons tests, then used it to transform dangerous radiation into benign forms of energy.
