Titanium was discovered in Cornwall in the UK in 1791, and it was soon recognized as an extremely useful metal. Its principal properties are superb corrosion resistance (even to sea water) and its extremely high strength to weight ratio. Its approx 45% ligther weight than steel, while exhibiting roughly the same strength, so there are significant weight savings in Titanium items (its also twice as strong as aluminum) its also fairly hard . The downside is the price, its much more expensive to extract and make than steel or aluminum. Its named after the Greek god Titan, in recognition of its great strength.
