TRUTH !!
Goodyear was imprisoned for debt twice, spending his savings to find a way to prevent
rubber from melting in summer and becoming brittle in winter. In 1834, while in debtor's
prison, Goodyear began experiments introducing various powders to rubber.
In 1839, while surviving on charity, he stumbled on the additive that would lead to
vulcanized rubber. Despite patenting the process, Goodyear died $200,000 in debt. Six
of his children would reap the rewards of the patent, but another six died of malnutrition.
