Joseph:  I realize that in addition to being a photographer, you are an engineer. I am fascinated by your answers and knowledge about different materials.  I was in a car accident and my legs were crushed.  They have been rebuilt and are 70% titanium.  I'm always curious about that material.  Do you have a references for the lay person? ....titanium and the human body?  I always have health problems, but, believe it or not, my orthopedic doctors don't have the answer to many of my concerns.  Well, one problem I know is that it doesn't float. I use a pull buoy to swim or my legs go straight down to the bottom of the pool. LOL
