The dawn of the jet age sees new research and possibilities. Taken by Life Magazine photographer Ralph Morse, this striking black and white image shows a process in full swing by the US Airforce for their study on the design on new flight helmets. Beaming streams of light over the head and shoulders, the contour of the body creates beautiful lines, mapping each curve. A wonderful print to bring science and photography together.
