    Fascinating. Thanks very much for posting this. RIP Stephanie Kwolek - Kevlar is indeed a most useful invention, and terrific to see a woman shine so impressively in such a field.

    I didn't realise kevlar was invented so long ago. Aramid fibres have had a big impact on our lives I hope she gets some decent coverage in the press over the next few days.
