German Scientists Make Iron Transparent

Scientists at DESY have made iron transparent. Well, let’s back up a moment. DESY is the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron, or “German Electron Synchrotron”, the biggest German research center for particle physics. What they have been working on there is making atomic nuclei transparent with the help of X-ray light. At the same time they have also discovered a new way …
