Description

A solidified metal captured on X-ray. The Maser-12 sounding rocket conducted a similar experiment to help understand aluminium alloys. A small furnace cooked a metal sample to 700°C. At this temperature, the mixture of aluminium and copper turned liquid before it was frozen inside a cooling chamber to solidify into crystal clusters. An X-ray camera captured this dramatic experiment for analysis.
