Icy blood?

UND is known across the world for its aeronautics training, and students come from many countries to attend.
Some students are sent by their governments for training as pilots.
The UND School of Aeronautics earned part of its reputation when research scientists on the staff invented the world's first ejector seat for helicopters.
For some reason, though, it was not given a patent.
