Chemical testing of the original parts was one part curiosity, and one part to set a baseline for a minimum requirement. I found it interesting that the optimum material available today, was very similar to what they chose some eighty years ago! Of course they called it something different then and it was not so refined. Add to that cryogenics and specialty coatings, and there is no reason not to exceed the original specs (except for lack of funds!) After all we put a man on the moon; why not a Scott back on the road?
