[VIDEO] From Star to Cars

The element that shaped the planet can help save it.

Did you know that your car came from outer space? Of course, it’s not an alien vessel, but it is made mostly of steel, which in turn is made mostly from iron, and iron – as From Stars to Cars explains – is a very special element.  Earth’s abundance of iron is, in the true sense of the word, a gift from the universe. It is the final element to be created before the stars extinguish and explode, spreading their remains throughout the universe for new stars and planets to arise from the ashes. From Stars to Cars provides detailed look into the science that makes steel one of the most sustainable and environmentally responsible material for making automobiles.  Take a look at the video.  And if you’re one of those people who likes all the details, download the papers from the links at right for all the deep-dive science that is the basis for the video.  Come back soon, or sign up for our enews–the From Stars to Cars papers will soon be available in a handy digital book format.  Printed copies will also be available.
