Transparisteel, almost.

The Air Force is testing transparent aluminum… As Karen Traviss points out, we’re getting damn close to transparisteel!

Also, the testing is at the Wright-Patterson Air Force base… I’ve been there. It’s where the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force is. Totally a must-see for anyone into that sort of thing – it’s huge. (And if you’re lucky, sometimes they give tours of the warehouses of all the stuff they’re not putting up in the main museum. Or at least they did a few years back.)

  1. Very cool. Now, if only I had an excuse to visit Ohio.

    And I will refrain from making some fangirl comment about this being all a result of what the Air Force has learned from SG-1’s retrieval of Goa’uld technology. [totally innocent fangirl grin]
