Innovation is key in the field of materials science. By developing new materials and understanding how they interact with other substances, scientists are able to create products that are stronger, lighter and more durable than ever before. This knowledge is also essential for developing new manufacturing processes and recycling existing materials. As our world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, the importance of materials science will only grow. With continued innovation, we can develop new materials that will help us solve some of the world's most pressing problems.
According to researchers, a University of Minnesota Twin Cities team has developed a technology that converts one metal into another.
NASA innovators developed a new metal alloy that is significantly stronger and more durable than the components currently used in aviation.
In a move that has largely gone under the radar, Raytheon has decided to quietly create a new business unit to develop next-gen fighters and hypersonic missiles.
