Wkipedia & Google Help To Discover Kryptonite

By Li Evans

SupermankryptoniteIn a headline that seems to be ripped from the D.C. comic pages, it seems that the a museum curator got the idea to enter in the composition of a new mineral identified as Jadarite into Google.  What did Google return?  Surprise, surprise, it gave back an entry from Wikipedia for Kryptonite.  Unless you live in a *bat*cave, you would know that Kryptonite is the fictional mineral that saps the power from Superman.

The new mineral was found in a mine located in Serbia, however unlike the Superman Returns list of the mineral's chemistry composition, the rock doesn't contain fluorine.  The white rock also lacks the basic element "kypton", thus why it can't be called Kyrptonite.

"I'm afraid it's not green and it doesn't glow either," Chris Stanley of the Natural History Museum told BBC News. "Although it will react to ultraviolet light by fluorescing a pinkish-orange."

We all now know kryptonite exists, right, since it's chemical compound is in Wikipedia?  If your interested in learning more about Jadarite, Wikipedia has that too.

Ms. Lisa, how could I truly resist reporting on this?  Don't worry though, they get no link love from SMG!
