I'm in Popular Science Magazine!

No, that's a slight exaggeration on my part, but allow me to briefly indulge in a little self-aggrandisement right now.

After months of waiting, guiding and toing and froing, it's finally happened: Theodore Gray (from fame, Ig Noble Prize infamy and contributor to Popular Science) made good on his promise to publish an article on backyard titanium production in Popular Science, the... erm... #1 US popular science magazine! The article is based on Theo's own experiments with my calcium sulphate boosted TiO2 thermite formulation.

The article made it to the cover, with photo! It will shortly be followed by publication in the online edition (, with cloaked link to my how-to guide...

With special thanks to Tim, forum master at the ABYMC forum to get the ball rolling on all this, all these months ago...

Here's the online version of the article.

And here's Theodore Gray carrying out titanium thermite reactions using my method:
