Liquid Alsterene is a high density liquid fuel that was transported aboard Ocean Pioneer tankers.
The Mystery of the Radio InterferenceEdit
International Rescue started to get interference on their radio transmissions while on a mission to save a hospital (that had been hit by a typhoon), on the Pacific island of Oahu.
With the help of Tin-Tin, Brains' experiments show that the result of close proximity of a high density liquid fuel (alsterene) and a low density substance known as OD-60, produces high impedance waves, which can interrupt and cut off radio communication on a bandwidth for a given distance.
Brains also observed that the contents of the test-tubes by even a closer proximity, further chemical action takes place, until finally they explode.
