Romney fires plasma gun triggered by star
ANN ARBOR -- Gov. George Romney ushered in the space age at the Great Ann Arbor Research Park by "firing" a plasma gun triggered by a star.
Clad in heavy smock coat and gloves and wearing a welder's mask, Romney triggered the gun activated by a radio impulse relayed from the constellation of Taurus. The impulse from the University of Michigan's radio telescope set off a spray of molten metal on commemorative medallions.
The space age ceremonies welcomed the first resident of the 210-acre development, Federal-Mogul division research and development operation.
A workforce consisting of 21 metallurgists, chemists, electro-chemists and technicians will work in the 23,600 square foot structure.
