found that It took a weight of nearly
a ton to crack the nuts, and that after
that effort the meat of the nut was
broken In many small pieces.
Then they applied liquid air to the
problem. They did not freeze solid a
piece of rubber and use It for a ham

physics classes, but they simply Im
mersed the nuts In liquid air for 30
seconds and cracked them easily, with
