While choosing the best metal to use for goods exchanging, our ancestors considered many different types. Gold seemed to be a good choice since it’s resistant to corrosion, and you can melt it over a flame, which makes it easy to stamp it as a coin or work with it in any other way. Gold is not that rare but is not easy to find and extract in larger amounts with pre-industrial technology. Geologists believe most of the Gold on our planet came from space with meteorite storms more than two billion years ago. It’s one of the densest metals on our planet, and humans have mined around 180,000 tonnes of it by now. If you want to tell if the diamond you’re holding is real or fake, breathe out on it.

When the piece is ground to reach the desired consistency, harmful elements from the surface of the meat can get inside. And it can potentially render the dish unsafe to eat.
We’ve now reached a point in scientific development where we can simply invent materials that don’t exist naturally on Earth. A team of scientists responsible for this amazing discovery has managed to put together a substance that has only been found in meteorites so far. This material — called Tetrataenite — is a mixture of two metals: nickel and iron. Sure, we have plenty of nickel and iron right here on our planet, but not in this precise combination. The difference is that when these two metals travel through space in meteorites, they get cooled down over the millions of years of their journey. You may think of a meteorite, in this case, as a floating washing machine. Only this one never stops working. It keeps spinning materials over and over again at a very low temperature. These conditions were responsible for creating Tetrataenite. But why is this material so important?
