Neutron Embrittlement And Magic Alloys

In my Traveller campaign a key development to allow power plants is a steel alloy with a high copper content.

It's dubbed "Reardon Metal" after the Ayn Rand novel "Atlas Shrugged".

It needs 0-G to make, but it doesn't become brittle with exposure to neutrons like most other metals.

It's also key to the manufacture of all manner of gravitic components.
