In some of the universes featured in my works, a material known as Skarilium exists. This material is used by humanity, in a universe where we’ve successfully colonized the majority of Mars and are in the process of colonizing other planets in the solar system, as armor plating on fighter jets that double as spacecraft.
Skarilium has the following qualities:
- It is lightweight, weighing roughly 3150 kilograms per cubic meter
- It is extremely enduring, being able to withstand the conditions of the Upper Mantle of Earth for up to 30 minutes with only minimal burns, even if in the form of a sheet that’s 2 millimeters thick.
Now with those qualities, what are some environments where Skarilium could potentially occur naturally? Furthermore, depending on the nature of those environments, would it be something that humans could potentially have the technology to obtain by 2062?
P.s. I’ve been informed that the above example of how lightweight Skarilium is would make it lighter than Earth’s Air is at sea level. I did not intend for it to be lighter than air. For better reference, it is meant to be more lightweight than the lightest metal in real life, but is not as lightweight as air.
P.s.s. I’ve changed the qualities of Skarilium somewhat.
P.s.s.s. I’ve changed the qualities of Skarilium again.
