ALLEN Is chief of high-speed ·esearch at the Ames Aeronaut- cal Laboratory of the National idvlsory committee for Aero- Duties at Moffett Field, Gallfc He received the NACA'g highest onor, the distinguished Service ilcdal, for his finding. Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, director f the advisory committee, the overnment's top air research gency, said that In 1952 mill- ary men believed Allen's leory wai "foolish." He said hlnklng then'called for point- 1 nose for high speed s fllght. 1 . · · · · THE INTERCONTINENTAL xUllitic missile will break free " the earth's atmosphere as It urtles toward a target 3,000 miles away. Then as It approaches the target, It wll plunge back Into the atmosphere at · speed of 13,000 miles an hour. But Allen showed that a blunt nose rapidly would cut the mis- tile's speed to about 300 miles an hour. He said the blunt nose sets up a shock'Wave or shield that throw» off 99 per cent of the heat · · ». · · · ' - . WITH A SHARP nose, the temperature'might rise to about 20,000 degrees around the nose and evaporate It . . Dryden and Allen said that In 1952 the question regarding development of an Intercontinental missile was whether "we could do It at all." Now, they said* the missile was a certainty and the question was how big the nose cone should be. Allen's finding was made known to the Air Force In Jan-! Uary, 1953, and accepted toward he end of that year. The Aero-' lautlcal Advisory Committee 1 said his -conclusions were "so radical" it "was only natural that some time elapsed" before they were accepted. ··· .- · Allen, a native of Maywood, HI.,'now lives at Palo Alto, Calif.
