Mohs Hardness Scale

The Mohs Hardness Scale was developed by Friedrich Mohs in 1812.  The scale was created by testing which specific materials could scratch other materials, therefore, determining the hardness of each material.  He used 10 minerals in his test and by doing this he found that…

Shape Shifting Metal Created?

Researches at North Carolina State University claim to have created shape shifting metal that can be controlled by applying a low voltage to the material.  When the voltage is applied, the metal shifts into a flat pancake like shape and when the voltage is reversed,…
