What is gorilla glass

Much like the first edition print of any comic book hero’s tale, Corning Glass was born of a science experiment gone wrong. In 1952 a scientist at Corning placed a piece of photosensitive glass in a furnace for testing. At some point the furnace skyrocketed from 600 degrees Celsius to 900 degrees. Expecting a ruined sample, the scientist was surprised to find an opaque sheet of material rather than a melted blob of molten mess.
