Life on the cutting edgeGets boring when slicing becomes dull

Challenge 15 Solution

The Space Shuttle helps make chopping herbs a lot easier

Cronidur® 30 is an extremely tough steel alloy developed for use in Space Shuttle fuel pumps. These babies deliver thousands of litres of liquid oxygen and hydrogen – aka rocket fuel – each second to the Shuttle's ravenous main engines. Today, this metal's space-hardy corrosion resistance (100 times better than before) makes it ideal for old-fashioned vegetable chopping in the kitchen, whether at home or in fancy restaurants. It will neither rust nor dull, and knives keep their edges keener, longer.
