Awesome new "Nanotube Muscles" developed
« poslato: 20.03.2009 22:42:08 »
Carbon-nanotube ribbons developed by researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas are stronger than steel, as stretchy as rubber, and as light as air. The ribbons, which are made of long, entangled 11-nanometer-thick nanotubes, can stretch to more than three times their normal width but are stiffer and stronger than steel or Mylar lengthways. They can expand and contract thousands of times and withstand temperatures ranging from -190 to over 1,600 °C. What's more, they are almost as light as air, and are transparent, conductive, and flexible.

So awesome! verovatno je ultra zajebano za pravljenje, ali najzad eto materijala za starshipove, plus there is no need for windows now. :D

Samo da se prilikom  završnog ispitivanja ne ispostavi da se u kontaktu sa vodom pretvara u žele sa ukusom jagode. :)
You underestimate my propensity for acting on a whim, Dan. I might kill you just for the sheer cosmic perversity of the act.
