    Titanium Bike Manufacturer Crafted a Part for Mars Curiosity!

    I just saw photos of a member's striking one off Titanium bike on these pages. That reminded me that the NASA website has a pictures of a Titanium robot arm made for the Mars Curiosity rover. The arm was made by Litespeed, a USA Titanium bike manufacturer! Wow.
