World's Strongest Superacid

Superacids are highly corrosive.

In the Alien movies, the alien has acid for blood that is so strong it eats through the hull of the spaceship, not to mention people's skin. Did you know there is a real acid that makes the alien blood seem tame in comparison? The world's strongest superacid is so corrosive it would have eaten through the floor of the ship, exploded on contact with human flesh or water and evolved poisonous fumes while reacting so that even if contact with the acid didn't kill you, the vapors would.

Oh... and did I mention the acid dissolves glass and most other materials, so it's tricky to store? It's great stuff!... Learn which acid it is!
