Comments on Graphene - Nanofabric One Atom Thick
A nanofabric called graphene just one atom thick has been created at The University of Manchester. (Read the complete story)

"I remember an exploration party in some SF novel using 'decamole' inflatable buildings, each of which packed into the volume of a matchbox"

"This material will make possible the next generation of computers. At the moment we seem to be stuck at 3.3GHz."
(Hendrlik Baggerman 11/19/2004 12:11:02 AM)
"This is how strong? Perhaps all we con hope for now is stronf fabric, only 10 molecues thick."

"ISTHIS SCIENCE INVOLVED WITH THE NANOFIBER BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE SPACE ELEVATOR"
(SHADOW 4/26/2005 11:46:51 AM)
"FYI, Decamole was used by Julian May, in the Saga of Pleistocene Exile (Many-Colored Landy, Golden Torc, Nonborn King, and Adversary) and was likely mentioned in later series in the same worldset."

"The implications of the discovery of graphene, its properties, and potential technology that may flow from it are briefly discussed in an article entitled "Smooth operator" in The Economist, March 18, 2006 issue, page 77. The article asserts that graphene "demonstrates a characteristic never seen before in any material--and one that challenges the fundamental laws of physics." If this is so, this could be one of the most important discoveries in the history of science, with vast implications as we come to understand it and physics better. Its potential importance cannot be overstated. I wonder if a company is being formed to develop it and manufacture it ... a company one could invest in. "

"this is god, BOW TO ME!!"

"This is a great achievement but it's not "truly two-dimensional" any more than "Flatland" was about two-dimensional creatures."

"is it possiable now, or it is still in a testing basis. please tell me.my e mail is.. hetalpandya123@rediffmail.com"
