Prof. R. Igor Gamow
Of all the forward thinking inventors that have been cultivated in the state of Colorado, Igor Gamow ranks right up there with the best of the best. An avid outdoorsman, Gamow developed many inventions for safety in outdoor activities and founded Hyperbaric Mountain Technologies as the formal business entity to market his efforts. The most significant invention, The Gamow Bag, was patented in 1990 and is still lauded by high altitude climbers and explorers as the ideal resource in combating AMS, HAPE, and HACE, all severe life threatening conditions from the lack of oxygen at higher altitudes. Sold to DuPont Co. and still on the market in various forms, The Gamow Bag has saved scores of climber's lives around the world.From the Author:

Our proposed science series has been designed to inspire students, through education and entertainment to restore our previous status.
