De la Kryptonite découverte dans une mine

Titre: ‘Kryptonite’ discovered in a mine

Un nouveau minerai correspondant a la composition chimique unique de la Kryptonite, comme decrit dans le film “Superman Returns“, a ete identifie dans une mine en Serbie.

Apres avoir identifie la composition de ce minerai (sodium lithium bore silicate hydroxyde), les scientifiques furent surpris de decouvrir en faisant une recherche sur le Web que cette formule chimique correspond a la description scientifique ecrite sur une caisse de roches contenant un fragment de Kryptonite, vole par Lex Luther dans le film “Superman Returns“. La seule difference est que la Kryptonite contiendrait de la fluorine, ce que ne contient pas le minerai decouvert. Digg!

En complement:

  • Super-heros, Superman, Kryptonite, Lex Luther (articles Wikipedia en Francais)
  • le film: “Superman Returns” (article Wikipedia)
  • The Science of Superheroes (BBC News – Science & Nature): Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Daredevil, Superman, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men
  • Passez le test: Quel Super-heros etes-vous?
  • Lire aussi l’article Wikipedia correspondant en Anglais, Kryptonite: “In Superman Returns, an additional piece of kryptonite is found in a rock fragment, once more in Addis Ababa. Lex Luthor steals it from a Metropolis museum and uses it in his quest to create a new kryptonite landmass. During the extraction process, the rock appears to hold a significant amount of green kryptonite. The scientific name for the rock was displayed on its case, ‘Sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide with fluorine’. As borosilicate glass is commonly crystalline and green-tinted, this could be a plausible human mis-identification of kryptonite; alternately, as no ‘unknown’ component is listed, one might assume this (sodium/lithium/borosilicate/fluorine) blend to be the actual composition of green kryptonite. Though more likely, the researchers who performed the analysis of the fragment did not perform a core sample test. They may have only chipped off the outer layer in order to test it.”
