A team of scientists have successfully produced a new form of Aluminum that exists only under immense pressure such as the conditions found at Earth’s core on the nanoscale. Published in Nature Communications, the team pulsed laser light into a sapphire in order to mimic the internal events of the earth and have the sample melt properly. The material may yeild new insights into the electromagnetic forces at play in the heart of our planet, Science Daily reports.
When asked about the ramification of his team’s discovery, Professor Juodkazis said.
“Using this focused laser technique, we may now be able create a range of superdense metals that have extraordinary properties,” he said. “The creation of superdense silver or gold, for example, could lead to many new possibilities for bio-sensing and plasmonics.”
I’m sure Glen Beck and Rush are already working on their commercials for SUPERGOLD.
“When the collapsed economy collapses again and your gold that you purchased with your worthless cash, itself becomes worthless, BUY SUPERGOLD!”
