Super Glue

We love quirky stories, so here's one for you

Harry Coover, a scientist at Cornell University was researching new compounds to improve military gun sights with his team from Kodak in 1942 when he discovered cyanoacrylate, the scientific name for Super Glue. At first, the glue was criticised because it had ruined the machinery used for the research. However, in 1958 it was eventually marketed by Kodak as Super Glue.

I didn't know super glue was military tech...
