Super Glue Inventor Harry Wesley Coover Dies

Harry Wesley Coover Jr., the inventor of Super Glue, has died. He was 94. Coover died Saturday at his home in Kingsport, Tennessee. He was working for Tennessee Eastman Company when an accident helped lead to the popular adhesive being discovered. In 1951, Coover and another researcher recognized the potential for the strong adhesive, and it was first sold in 1958, according to the Super Glue’s website. President Barack Obama honored Coover in 2010 with the National Medal of Science. Coover also had a part in early television history, appearing with Garry Moore for “I’ve got a Secret.” Moore, the show’s host, and Coover were hung in the air on bars that were stuck to metal supports with a single drop of his glue during a live broadcast.

The use of "super-glue" became essential in the history of Freestyle-Frisbee. To develop their techniques, Freestylers started to glue "Fake Nails" on their finger to improve their Moves & Tricks. The longer and harder nail reduced friction making the disc spin faster and enabling freestylers to do longer "delays" especially inside the rim of the disc. Combining the "Fake Nails" with some pure silicon-spray created an explosive variety in the world of frisbee moves. Nowadays almost all Freestyle players glue fake nails onto their real nails although there are still some players out there who play without. This goes to show:with or without nails- everyone is able to do cool tricks. With a frisbee there are no limits!

I'm sure many of us owe Dr. Coover big time for keeping our nails on all these years!
