Using a fusion of materials contained in car keys and one odd sock, a crack team of UK scientists has created a substance that may revolutionise stealth technology for Britain’s military. The new substance may initially be detected by radar or the human eye, but then appears to vanish.
In addition, the team has found that the masking effect works even better in high pressure situations, such as if the target is already running late.
The press conference unveiling the breakthrough was declared ‘a resounding success’ as the team were unable to locate the prototype they had brought along to demonstrate. ‘I know I put it down right there!’ protested project leader Barry Stalwart, as journalists and invited dignitaries shuffled off towards the hospitality tray.
