Is Titanium Bulletproof?

Titanium is a high-strength metal that is used principally in the aerospace industry, for both airframes and engines, as well as in the defense industry, for spacecraft and missiles. The metal’s lightweight strength and ability to withstand extreme temperatures are the main factors why aircraft and fighter jet manufacturers rely on it. If the metal is strong and light, is it also bulletproof?

In this video, internet personality Matt Carriker of YouTube channel Demolition Ranch, tried to find out if titanium can repel bullets when his staff received a one-fourth inch chunk of titanium from Tactical Advantage Armory. Matt did not disappoint in his field test as he fired an entire arsenal of ammunition at the slab of titanium.

Matt first fired two rounds of 22 LR rimfire from a pistol, which only made a splat against the block. Then, he proceeded to use a 9mm, which he described as a real caliber. It also failed to penetrate the titanium and just produced a dent barely. A 44 Magnum delivered the same result.

The previous failures did not affect Matt’s persistence, so he opted for a 400-grain bullet which he applied to a Henry rifle. Again, the bullet had no effect on the metal. When he tried a 325-grain Hornady LeveRevolution round which was predicted to go deeper, it had not much effect as the 400-grainer. A similar round from a 30-30-160 grain tipped bullet was also a meh!

With few weapons left, Matt resorted to using more powerful guns including a 12 gauge, one-ounce slug, a 7.62 x 39 FMJ from an AK rifle, and a 5.56 NATO. The first one was impressive while the second was disappointing. The last one did the best but was far from penetrating the titanium.

There came the 50-caliber Barrett which nearly tore through the entire block. The 50 BMG is so powerful that it moved a telephone pole back a couple of feet in the process.

So is titanium bulletproof as shown in the video? In most cases, it looks like it’ll resist most any bullet in its tracks. So stop worrying. It sounds like your titanium jumpsuit should keep you safe unless you are facing some extreme resistance. However, given enough rounds with a super high-power weapon loaded with armor piercing ammunition, titanium can be penetrated.

How To Convert A Van Into An Off-Grid Camper In 17 Days

How To Convert A Van Into An Off-Grid Camper In 17 Days

For off-grid enthusiasts, devoting themselves to a life of exploring, traveling, hiking, and adventure is their ultimate dream. They could only follow through on their desires if they have a tiny, portable place when they can rest from time to time. Buying a camper can break their bank, so the next option is to convert a vehicle into an ultimate camper. In this video, YouTuber Nate Murphy took a gutted cargo van and turned the vehicle into a wood-paneled, self-powered and comfortable home. He documented the process which took 17 days.

Murphy’s tiny home on wheels is complete with sleeping quarters, a stove and sink combo that doubles as the bathroom, and lots of clever storage spaces. Nate managed to turn the van into an off-grid camper that has a comfy fixed bed. He used his own hands and knowledge to construct something he wanted instead of buying it.

Nate shelled out $15,500 to build a fully-featured RV-type vehicle whose overall look and design he had control of. Over the course of few weeks, Nate built the full interior of the off-grid vehicle which has a solar panel mounted on its roof. The camper’s fan sources its power from the solar panel.

Ingenuity and resourcefulness are some of the traits which mark a true-blue off-grid enthusiast. Nate used both traits to create a quality build any RV manufacturer would be envious of.

Nate advises others to spend a bit more on a decent base van. He stresses the need to use good materials that last. He believes that he could recoup his investment despite the added mileage. He recommends making the camper as comfortable as possible since it is essentially going to be free to own it.

He also created an eBook which contains all the details of the conversion process including electronic schematics, construction techniques, step-by-step decision making, and suppliers and prices. The eBook is in PDF format and will only consume 25Mb of your device’s memory.

Nate assures others that converting the van into an off-grid camper does not require super-specialist knowledge in automotive design. All you need are skills in measuring, cutting, and screwing together wood to make the van or something like it that fits your needs.

The eBook’s chapters offer information on the camper’s gas system, heating system, battery system, and off-grid solar system. The file contains lots of annotated photos, making it easy to understand key elements of the build.

Costa Rica Has Gotten All Of Its Electricity From Renewables For 75 Days Straight

Costa Rica Has Gotten All Of Its Electricity From Renewables For 75 Days Straight Photo – PD

Costa Rica is one of the green gems in a world that runs itself ragged on nonrenewable energy. In 2015 and 2016, this republic in Central America used close to 100 percent renewable energy in the production of electricity – 98.9 and 98.1 percent respectively in both years. The Cost Rican Electricity Institute or ICE reported that the country’s renewable energy comes from hydropower facilities, geothermal plants, wind turbines, solar panels and biomass. [1]

Non-renewable Energy Sources And Carbon Emissions



Compared to Costa Rica, less than 15 percent of the United States’ electricity production came from renewable sources. In a country that has close to 10 million square kilometers of land mass, 85 percent of the electric supply is nonrenewable and has contributed to the increasing amount of carbon emissions in the world. According to the US Energy Information Administration, carbon dioxide production due to the generation of electricity was 1,925 million metric tons in 2015, roughly 37% of energy related carbon dioxide emissions in country. In fact, almost two thirds of electricity generation in the US came from coal and natural gas— and even worse, nuclear energy was used for the remaining 19 percent. [2][3]

How do these numbers fare against Costa Rica, a country with 50,000 square kilometers of land mass? You can reason that because of Costa Rica’s small area, it is much easier to power the entire country with renewable energy sources. However, we can also reason that the United States, a first world country considered a global superpower, has innumerable resources at its disposal in order to focus efforts on renewable energy sources. If supplying 100 percent seems too difficult, the US can do much better than 15 percent, surely.

The Effects Of Climate Change On Costa Rica

Because Costa Rica depends largely on renewable sources of electricity, it is largely affected by climate change brought about by global warming. Erratic changes in weather will affect the energy produced by their green-sourced facilities, which can cause a shift from renewable to nonrenewable energy sources — something the Costa Rican government wishes to avoid at all costs. Climate change will cause a rise in temperature and change to a drier climate, which will ultimately affect the biodiversity in Costa Rica – but these changes due to global warming will not only affect Costa Rica, but the entire world. While Costa Rica’s path to becoming carbon-neutral by 2021 seems not too far off, we all have to play our part in making sure our own countries go green as well. [4]
