Natural gypsum (pictured) has to ground into a powder before use

Composed mainly of calcium sulfate dihydrate, gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral used in cement, drywall, plaster and other building materials. Scientists have now devised a method of creating synthetic gypsum, which should be more energy efficient than processing the genuine article.

Assuming it goes ahead as planned, the museum will be home to what CRA calls the world’s largest archive of acrylic fiber technology.
