When great minds pass on, I stop and think about not only what they did but how they did it. The recent news tributes to Dr. Harvey Coover, who died on March 27, really caught my attention. What was his claim to fame? Don’t laugh—he was the inventor of that infamous material called Super Glue, a super sticky adhesive in a little tube that is found in most households today.
You could probably name dozens of situations when you want two broken parts or materials put back together and not have those pieces come apart again. My list includes stuff like damaged toys, shoes, tools, kitchen gadgets, furniture, dishes, etc. Did you know that Super Glue is also used to seal wounds and heal bone fractures?
