    Re: New material can stop speeding bullets

    that is sweet. The fact that it stops the bullet, closes the entry hole, and contains it, is really cool.

    They have a teflon or kevlar like material they use for military helicopters as the fuel tank that does something similar But that stuff isn't transparent and doesn't really stop it as much as just sealing the hole behind the bullet.

    I wonder if they can stop bigger and faster projectiles with additional layers of this stuff. I'm guessing it's still in the development stages so I'm sure someone can improve it. I wonder what it's weight is compared to our current bulletproof glass.

    It may be able to stop bullets... but can it stop Superman? Not interested unless it can do both.

    Re: New material can stop speeding bullets

    Yeah, but how does it do against those non-speeding bullets? That's the REAL question.

    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Maybe instead of trying to stop one you should just jump over it.
