An insidious and ubiquitous menace Thumbnail


Lidija Siller


When the US Department of Defense describes something as a "pervasive menace", one that can tear apart aeroplanes, shut down oil pipelines and render nuclear weapons useless, most people will react by picturing a terrorist organization or hostile foreign power. The reality, though, is both more mundane and far more damaging. That destructive force is corrosion and it is the subject of science journalist Jonathan Waldman's new book Rust: the Longest War.
