I DON'T THINK WE'RE AT KITTY HAWK ANYMORE:

3D-printed "superalloy" could make power plants more efficient (Sam Jarman, 7/09/23, Big Think)

A new high-performance metal alloy, called a superalloy, could help boost the efficiency of the turbines used in power plants and the aerospace and automotive industries.

Created using a 3D printer, the superalloy is composed of a blend of six elements that altogether form a material that's both lighter and stronger than the standard materials used in conventional turbine machinery. The strong superalloy could help industries cut both costs and carbon emissions -- if the approach can be successfully scaled up.
