Default High Cycle Memory Alloys

Ooh nice, solid state refrigerators and aircon? Interesting, no more refrigerant disposal, probably almost silent, useful for other things as well.

"It's a significant find," he told BBC News.

"Normal shape memory alloys show quite significant changes in their properties, over quite a small number of cycles. The properties decay away.

"[Ten million] is what you start to need for cyclic applications - it gets you into the high cycle fatigue regime. That opens up potentially quite a lot of applications."

Technology advance shows no sign of slowing down. People's appreciation of it has though.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
