Prof. Greg Aldrete’s innovative research with linen armor got some quality airtime Wednesday (Nov. 9) when it was featured on the Discovery Channel program “Penn & Teller Tell a Lie.” The show takes seemingly outrageous claims and backs them up with scientific evidence — most of them, anyway (audiences vote live on which claim is the lie). Aldrete’s armor, developed through the years with the help of some curious (and brave) students, can stop an arrow without harming the wearer. Last night, it was 2007 alumna Scott Bartell once again taking the shot (and escaping unscathed).
