Self-described 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was also kept at cobalt after his March 2003 in Pakistan.
That was when General Motors was preparing to roll out the 2005 cobalt.
After just a “few minutes” of questioning at cobalt, he was subject to enhanced interrogation techniques.
Mining asteroids is about iron and nickel as well as cobalt and platinum-group metals, but also water and energy, he says.
In fact, four of 20 cells at cobalt were found to have bars across the cell to allow this.
Roughly speaking, therefore, cobalt behaves oppositely to iron.
"I wish you'd call me cobalt, miss," said the man with a smile.
The painting with cobalt is generally done on the biscuit before glazing.
It is the source of a considerable supply of nickel and cobalt.
Very good, cobalt—you'll 'phone me if you make any other discoveries.
1680s, from German kobold "household goblin," Harz Mountains silver miners' term for rock laced with arsenic and sulfur (so called because it degraded the ore and made the miners ill), from Middle High German kobe "hut, shed" + *holt "goblin," from hold "gracious, friendly," a euphemistic word for a troublesome being. The metallic element was extracted from this rock. It was known to Paracelsus, but discovery is usually credited to the Swede George Brandt (1733), who gave it the name. Extended to a blue color 1835 (a mineral containing it had been used as a blue coloring for glass since 16c.). Cf. nickel.
cobalt co·balt (kō'bôlt')
A metallic element, used chiefly for magnetic and high-temperature alloys and in the form of its salts for blue glass and ceramic pigments. Atomic number 27; atomic weight 58.9332; melting point 1,495°C; boiling point 2,930°C; specific gravity 8.9; valence 2, 3.
A silvery-white, hard, brittle metallic element that occurs widely in metal ores. It is used to make magnetic alloys, heat-resistant alloys, and blue pigment for ceramics and glass. Atomic number 27; atomic weight 58.9332; melting point 1,495°C; boiling point 2,900°C; specific gravity 8.9; valence 2, 3. See Periodic Table.
