Lawrence and his colleagues used radioisotopes to help
pilots deal with the consequences of high-altitude
flying. Pressurized cabins did not exist at that
point. Donner Lab researchers used radioisotopes of
inert gases to study decompression sickness and other
maladies. These tracer studies made fundamental

aircraft oxygen measurement equipment. As a result of
