Whats The Moon Made Of?
"A giant explosion on the sun in January of 2005 allowed SMART-1 (a European spacecraft orbiting the moon) to detect what elements the moon is made up of based on the X-rays from the sun's explosion. This allows scientists to speculate on the moon's origins while seeing data from all over the moon as opposed to the core samples we have collected and returned in the past. From the article: 'Scientists responsible for the D-CIXS instrument on SMART-1 are also announcing that they have detected aluminium, magnesium and silicon. "We have good maps of iron across the lunar surface. Now we can look forward to making maps of the other elements." said SMART-1's Principal Investigator.'"

I was wondering about this also.

I remember years ago when it was a "rare" commodity used only for special purposes. Now its used in everything from zippers to furniture and a million other disposable consumer crap items.

To me something "rare" is only "rare" if you hardly ever see it in use. Like you may hear about it but never see it or see it only a few times in your life.

It reminds me of the whole diamond rarity pricefixing scam. I think theres a video of it on the tracker or torrentspy/ed2k...forget.

Outside of the dungeons and dragons universe, Titanium is incredibly abundant on this planet. There is no possible way we are using more of it than is available because it makes up a huge portion of the Earth's crust. If anything, we will be mining Titanium for thousands of years to come, because it is one of the most available elements within our reach. It is in fact in the top ten most abundant elements on the surface of this planet.

Wrong on so many counts.

ups, I quote from your link, scroll down the page to Occurrence:

Quote:Titanium metal is always bonded to other elements in nature. It is the ninth-most abundant element in the Earth's crust [...] Significant titanium ore deposits exist in Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, North America, and Malaysia. Large quantities have also been detected in the Kwale region in Kenya, deposits to which a Canadian firm, Tiomin, has mining rights.

THAT was the best thing I've read all day! HaHaHaha! I'm still laughing about this one! I find it funny that someone would go out of there way to PROVE someone WRONG, the whole time being wrong themselves! Thats the way the world is. So sad, yet very,very funny at the same time. Thanks for that one! =)

Yeah - i laughed too after id done it. But im big enough to be wrong. Thats why i didnt edit it. Read all my posts and sometimes I will pick apart my own posts with follow up posts as I learn more about the topic or if I spot a flaw in my point/argument/logic.

People get too serious on these things thinking they are big men/women and they can never be wrong and sometimes even resort to personal sledging. Im right some times but am wrong some times also. This cancels out to leave me at zero.

Glad to amuse you...

:-)
