    Growing up in New York State, my family and I toured the plant when I was very, very young. Just some foggy, vague memories remain. I remember my parents being very impressed.

    The smartest people with whom I've had the privilege to work.

    Corning invented fiber-optic data communication, without which the internet would not be possible.
    The LCD display you are viewing is almost certainly faced with glass from Corning.
    Same for your smart phone.
