Details

This is an original press photo. Henry G. Houghton Jr., member of the research staff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studying fog particles at the Institute's research station at Round Hill, Mass., with the aid of a special apparatus designed for this work.Due to the expriments it is believed that fog, the deadliest menace to the aviator and mariner, has been finally conquered. By spraying a chemical solution from a pipe in the form of a curtain of tiny drops which, in falling through the fog, condense the water vapor and carry it to the ground by force of gravity. This results in lowering the relative humidity and dissipating fog over an area the size of which depends upon the position of the disturbing conditions and winds.Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 7-7-1934.
