Sometime in the next 24 hours we will be switching European Tribune over to a new layout. This will involve a little downtime and no doubt some teething troubles. Do not adjust your set. - Colman

It's cool to see that they are now able to create platinum from tungsten (almost like creating gold from lead). Since tungsten costs about $50 per kilo and platinum about $3000 per kilo there is potential to make money with this technology, if significant quantities could be produced.

It may be even more cost effective to produce useable platinum catalysts by this method. They may even find highly effective mixtures of transmuted elements that could be deposited onto suitable substrates as they are transmuted. This could be a boon for fuel cell manufacturing.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
