Why was iron not used during the Bronze Age?

In the bronze age, people only had simple wood-fired pottery kilns, which could reach about the melting temperature of copper, but not iron. In addition, making iron requires hot working which is very complicated and labour-intensive, while for bronze it is simply melt and cast.

Is aluminum stronger than steel?

Aluminum is about one-third the weight of steel, meaning parts can be made thicker and stronger while still reducing weight in vehicles and other applications. Depending on the alloy and processing technique used, pound for pound aluminum can be forged to be just as strong if not stronger than some steel.

Can you shoot through aluminum?

The fact is; it can work but won’t in most cases. The speed of sound through aluminum is very different from the speed of sound through fiberglass. You get more signal loss when ‘shooting’ a sonar signal through aluminum versus fiberglass.
