Quote:An inexpensive new process can increase the strength of metals such as steel by as much as 10 times, and make them much more resistant to corrosion. If the modified metals pass field testing, the new process could go on to make bridges and other infrastructure last far longer; it could also make cars lighter and therefore more fuel-efficient.

This might be a stop-gap measure to create large structures while we're still waiting for carbon nanotubes.

I think the concern now is the cost?

Well, they did say it was an inexpensive method, so at least I can be sure that it will even be cheaper in the coming years as the practice gets perfected. This is great for aircraft in particular as they can still make do with the hardness of this new steel, at a lighter payload.
