This is a turbine blade that is responsible for making a jet engine work. This particular blade is from a fighter jet and routinely travels though the compression stage of the jet engine traveling faster than the speed of sound as it rotates. Due to the hot environment inside the engine, the turbine blades have to be specially engineered out of state of the art materials. Titanium, and titanium alloys are routinely used for turbine blades.
