Haven’t been on here lately because of my computer. Had some kind of virus/system error and got a new hard drive. Took a while to reinstall Windows, but now I’m back up and running, which may or may not be a good thing.
Anyways, it looks like the U.S. Air Force is benefitting from some visitors from the 23rd century:
Engineers here are testing a new kind of transparent armor — stronger and lighter than traditional materials — that could stop armor-piercing weapons from penetrating vehicle windows.
The Air Force Research Laboratory’s materials and manufacturing directorate is testing aluminum oxynitride — ALONtm …
Transparent aluminum? Isn’t that what Bones and Scotty gave to that engineer guy so they could bring the humpback whales back to the future?
We’re gonna have a time paradox on our hands here if someone’s not careful.
