Aluminium is on the cutting edge of technology. Science and research careers sparkle with opportunity. Research is under way to produce an Aluminium-air battery projected to run an electric car for 1,000 miles. Nanoparticle research is predicted to create breakthroughs in solar energy cell and nano-circuitry design. NASA’s new Orion spacecraft is using an Aluminium alloy to form its primary structure, and transparent Aluminium is advancing military armor protection. Researchers are using cutting-edge technology to study aqueous Aluminium, or Aluminium compounds formed in water, particularly Aluminium oxides. Aluminium oxides are compounds that include both Aluminium and oxygen.
