See how these important elements are vital to American industry and security.

  • The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.
  • Visit the National Defense stockpile.
  • For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.


Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.

They occupy a select portion of the periodic table. They are so essential to America's economic and military might that they are stored in the National Defense Stockpile in case of all-out war. But they are also, some of them, among the most mundane of all elements: copper, lead, zinc, and nickel.

MODERN MARVELS® also looks at the superalloys--consisting of steel combined with chromium, cobalt, and dozens of other metals--that resist corrosion and perform increasingly elaborate functions. From Earth to space, cosmetics to vitamins, in a million different ways, heavy metals are here to stay.
