Later on he was improving gas turbines.
  • His reputation continued to grow, and he became the factory\'s managing director from 1942 to 1945.
  • In recognition of his scientific work he was elected in 1943 corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
  • After the war distrust surrounded him, so he didn’t return from one of his travels abroad.
  • He lived in Argentina for a while, then settled in London, England.
