Science teacher Mas Subramanian and his team at Oregon State University accidentally discovered a new shade of blue while creating new electronics materials. YInMn blue, named after yttrium, indium, and manganese, has a unique, crystal structure that keeps it from fading and is a new candidate for energy efficiency because it can also reflect infrared light.

Existing blue pigments include ultramarine, which is made from ground lapis lazuli, as well as toxic alternatives like cobalt and Prussian blue, making OSU’s discovery a major breakthrough.


So, wait...

If Evilistrator can draw music notes, Nathanaël has to know music, and to know music, Nathanaël has to practice some type of art (Other than drawing). Meaning that it’s basically cannon that Nathanaël plays some sort of instrument, whether it be real, or just his voice? Hmm… Information, information. .. What are you hiding…?
