A Half Century of Cryogenics and CSA



Ray Radebaugh


1964 seems just like yesterday to me, yet it was 50 years ago. The Cryogenic Society of America (CSA) was born that year, and I was just beginning my professional career in cryogenics. Because I have been active in cryogenics for all these past 50 years, I would like to share some experiences and thoughts about the changes that have occurred, are occurring, and will occur in cryogenics.
