Self-Healing-Metals

A random activity became a learning experience for MIT researchers. A group of MIT researchers pulled a piece from a cracked metal thinking that it will get widen apart even more.

But what they saw was something unusual. Michael Demkowicz, MIT materials science and engineering professor, has affirmed that they saw the material to get back to its shape, which means it started auto-healing.

"Instead of extending, [the crack] was closing up. First, we figured out that, indeed, nothing was wrong. The next question was: `Why is this happening?'", said Demkowicz.
