A team of engineers from the University of California, San Diego, the University of Southern California and the California Institute of Technology claims to have developed and tested a type of steel with a record-breaking ability to withstand an impact without deforming permanently. The new steel alloy could be used in applications from drill bits, to body armour for soldiers, to meteor-resistant casings for satellites.
