Steel breakthough is revolutionary...

This stuff is a fantastic breakthrough.  Titanium strength to weight in Fe + Al + Ni.... who knew?

Every now and then, usually when you least expect it - wham!  This will change the world a little bit at a time.  The mind spins as you consider fatigue properties and corrosion resistance.

Another pretty fantastic steel is the 1.2 GPa stuff.

Very interesting changes in materials science indeed!  Lots of questions come to mind like... what about heat treating? Does it work harden? Ductility at high or low temps...
