Hey there!

What's the strongest material ever-existed? By means of either man-made or occurred naturally.

Please attach the links if possible. Currently trying to find out what is material sciences all about.


Thanks.

Materials science is more than determining the strongest material. It's about understanding the basic/fundamental properties of materials, their structure, and how they behave/perform. Materials engineeing is about manipulation of materials and their application.

Not sure if this is related, but teflon is pretty strong at least from what I've read.

It can contain fluoroantimonic acid (strongest known corrosive acid) without breaking. The acid corrodes basically everything else.
