Water pressureEdit

"...withstanding the pressure of 18,000 cubic feet of water..." This is a non-sequitor. "the pressure of 18,000 cubic feet of water" is meaningless from an Engineering or Scientific Standpoint, as the pressure generated by a volume of water is shape dependent. For example, if that volume of water is spread out over many acres, it would be 0 psi (pounds per square inch). If that volume were arranged in a column 1 foot square and 18,000 feet high, the pressure at the bottom would be about 8,400 psi.

  • University of Tokyo researchers have developed new glass material which is nearly as strong as steel.
  • They developed it by infusing aluminum oxide into the glass. It's actually 50% aluminum.... i.e. Transparent aluminum! --The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:42, November 4, 2015 (UTC)

Accurentum? That's silver. Edit

Apart from the aluminum (AL) and hydrogen (H), the diagram in the screen capture seems to pretty clearly have silver (AG) atoms, not accurentum (AC) as stated in the article.
