Scientists at NASA have developed a gun built specifically to
launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, military
jets and the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity.
The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions
with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.
British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it
on the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements
were made. But when the gun was fired, the engineers stood
shocked as the chicken hurtled out of the barrel, crashed into
the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, crashed
through the control console, snapped the engineer’s backrest in
two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin.
Horrified Britons sent NASA the disastrous results of the
experiment, along with the designs of the windshield, and
begged the U.S. scientists for suggestions.
NASA’s response was just one sentence, “Thaw the chicken.”
