We are obliged to tell you that the ideas put forward in these notes are such as to arouse such controversies that we are obliged to renounce definitively publishing them. Please accept, our colleague, the assurance of our highest consideration and our cordial, devoted feelings.” Riabouchinsky was a Soviet aeronautical engineer who built Russia’s first wind tunnel.
