Who would have known that researchers could develop a superstrong metallic glass that is potentially tougher than steel. Imagine a world where car windshields resist rocks and windows remain intact after a baseball hits it.

Developed by scientists from the Berkeley Lab and the California Institute of Technology, this superstrong metallic glass bends instead of cracks when stressed. This plasticity could introduce a whole new sturdiness to a slew of products out there.
