They asked 1,500 Twitter users to give feedback on 43,738 tweets from the accounts of 21,000 users they already followed between them.
Materials Scientists Turn Metal Into Glass - In a newly published study, University of Pittsburgh researchers report an experimental approach to the formation of monoatomic metallic glasses through ultrafast liquid quenching. Metallic glasses are unique in that their structure is not crystalline (as it is in most metals), but rather is disordered, with the atoms randomly arranged. They are strong, easily processed and sought for various commercial applications
