Does the idea seem plausible that a metal can be lighter than water? Well, try dropping your gold or iron ring in a glass full of water and watch it mockingly settle in the bottom after a few seconds. Will you then trust a ship that’s made entirely with this ‘light’ metal, which on closer inspection looks perforated very much like a block of cheese?
While you might seriously think about jumping into another vessel, the US Army Research Laboratory apparently knew what they were doing.
