11 Years of Science

A little bit more on some of these:

Parrot fever (Psittacosis) - 1930 Reported in Time.
"The birds apparently carry the germs in their mucous membranes and in insects bred in the warmth of their underwings."
Blind Flying - 1932 Hegenberger made the first solo, instruments only flight.
"He made his final landing approach by lining up on two radio transmitters through the use of a radio compass in his airplane."
'Unfathered' rabbit eggs - 1936 Pincogenesis in Time.
"It is ridiculous to even think that such work could be done with human beings."
