image not to scale
Metalloid Element
Suitably prepared germanium crystals have the property of passing gravity fluctuations in one direction only. These are used extensively in most deep space communication devices, such as ultra-high-frequency radio and radar signal detectors. Germanium crystals also have other specialized uses, including the manufacture of optical glass and as a drug in the treatment of gravity induced disabilities.
