50 YEARS OF RIBLETS
In 1987, the American sailing team 'Stars and Stripes' won an olympic medal and later the America's Cup. Their secret weapon was a riblet coating developed at NASA Langley. The technology worked so well, that it was temporarily banned from the America's Cup. Luckily, most industries don't ban technology when it is too good. Be like Stars and Stripes, people! And get involved in functional coatings that outcompete the status-quo.
