    'Bullet-proof' inventor Stephanie Kwolek has died

    PA-born DuPont scientist, Stephanie Kwolek, has died aged 90.

    She invented the super-strong, lightweight Kevlar fibre now used across the world in bullet-proof vests and body armor.

    '....she said she was afraid to tell her managers and conducted repeated tests just to make sure.

    "I didn't want to be embarrassed. When I did tell management, they didn't fool around. They immediately assigned a whole group to work on different aspects," she said.'

    Rest in peace Stephanie Kwolek.
