A metal used in Space Shuttle fuel pumps may help make vegetable chopping 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 chopping knives that will neither rust nor dull. (ANI)
