Ohhhohhhohohhhh…seeeee the fuuuuuture!

This my friends…well this is Buckypaper.

Dont be fooled. This material could revolutionize the world.

“Buckypaper is 10 times lighter but potentially 500 times stronger than steel when sheets of it are stacked and pressed together to form a composite. Unlike conventional composite materials, though, it conducts electricity like copper or silicon and disperses heat like steel or brass.

Buckypaper is made from tube-shaped carbon molecules 50,000 times thinner than a human hair. Due to its unique properties, it is envisioned as a wondrous new material for light, energy-efficient aircraft and automobiles, more powerful computers, improved TV screens and many other products.”

The material was created when a British scientist made an experiement to create the same conditions that exist in a star. An extra character turned up – a molecule with 60 carbon atoms shaped like a soccer ball. Eventually, that scientist and his colleagues were awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1996 for this discovery.

“So far, buckypaper can be made at only a fraction of its potential strength, in small quantities and at a high price. The Florida State researchers are developing manufacturing techniques that soon may make it competitive with the best composite materials now available.”


We’ll see now wont we? Personally, I’d like it if I could develop a personal body armor out of that. Iron man but not as bulky. Maybe? This could revolutionize chastity belts as we know them.
