So…apparently the movie “Star Trek: The Voyage Home” featured something called transparent aluminum. For the past 10 years the United States Military has been working on something like it. What they do is put a mineral called magnesium aluminate in a hot press and put it under a vacuum. The vacuum gets rid of the bubbles and when it gets grounded down and polished it can be used as glass….bulletproof glass! The cost will go down over time to be used in smartphones and watches. The possibilities are endless.
