New Wetsuit Paper Makes the MIT Homepage!

Jeff and collaborators at MIT recently published a paper on creating "synthetic blubber" to use in wetsuits for low-temperature diving.  Click here to for a press release, featured on the MIT homepage, on this work. 

On a recent vacation in Greece, Jeff did some product testing and wore a wetsuit rafting down the Voidomatis River, the coldest river in Europe (approximately 41 degrees Fahrenheit).

A PDF of the paper can be found here or on the publications page.
