In 1965 the University of Florida football coach Ray Graves requested help from his colleagues at the University of Florida College of Medicine to create a drink which would help his athletes replenish the body fluids they lost during games. A team of scientists blended water, salts, phosphates and lemon juice to create a drink which they named after the team, the Florida Gators. After the team won the 1967 Orange bowl, Gatorade became well known in the sports community.
I have this (fictional) feeling that the closest I could get to Tony Stark is in MIT. Of course, him being a (fictional) graduate of the university and me as a mega fan of the Iron Man/Avengers franchise. 😍
