‘Airestotle’ Tests the Air

By T.W. Burger

Excerpt: “It stands 7 feet tall and looks like a gangly tin scarecrow. But Airestotle’s mission is to measure, not to frighten.

Even so, what it is finding is scary enough.

Airestotle is a machine designed to sift the atmosphere for microscopic crud and measure how much there is.

The $15,000 gizmo was purchased by the Clean Air Board, a nonprofit group formed in 2005 by a group of about 100 physicians and a Unitarian Universalist Church concerned about air quality in the Carlisle/Harrisburg area. The board was helped with a grant from Keen Transport Inc., a construction equipment hauler based in New Kingstown.”
