Flourine [F], Uranium ,Carbon [C], Potassium [K]
All these show great promise...

Better than Barium-Rutherfordium alloy [BaRf], highly unstable.

Not as entertaining at Lanthanum Zirconium /  Carbon Astatine molecules being developed [LaZr CAt].

giant pile of data is what I call my peener as well.

Damn, that is super awesome.

That kind of production quality/precision opens doors for all kinds of materials science...

Will this kill the rate Earth metals market?

I thought maybe there was a RateMyEarthMetals.com

FTA: Traditionally, he says, those designing new alloys simply skip over the problem, or just look at the average properties of the grain boundaries as though they were all the same, even though they know that's not the case.

Not a day goes by that scientists don't disappoint me with how controlled they are by business interests. Science is full of catch-me-if-you-can lies, and consequences are for the lawyers. Or, in the military (like 50% of Aemrican science professionals), consequences are for taxpayers to pay for. And why? Because corporate funding controls what happens in a lab, most of the time, and scientists have no ethics about it. Not one ethic. :(
