If you were to arrive in this day and age with a time-machine from the 1960s, you'd think that the internet was the first possible thing one could possibly use: giant corporations frantically praying on consumers which become the victim of the technological age.

 

This stronger, lighter steel could soon end up in cars

A new method makes it possible to create high-strength, lightweight steel on an industrial scale, potentially making way for its use in vehicles.

Researchers have developed a new processing route which allows low density steel-based alloys to be produced with maximum strength, while remaining durable and flexible—something that has been largely impossible until now.

Vehicles made of stronger and lighter materials are safer for drivers, emit less CO2, and consume less fuel—and more malleable steels would allow manufacturers to form car parts into streamlined shapes.
