Go go carbon nanotubes..

…take the form of… a sheet stronger than steel!


In collaboration with scientists from the NanoTech Institute of the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) – CSIRO has achieved a major breakthrough in the development of a commercially-viable manufacturing process for a range of materials made from carbon nanotubes.

Carbon nanotubes possess a number of qualities – high tensile strength, high flexibility, high electrical and thermal conductivity, and transparency – which have excited great interest in a number of manufacturing industries including the electronic, automotive, energy and clothing industries.

The flexible carbon nanotubes have been spun into ribbons that conduct electricity efficiently – and are five times stronger than steel.

Live Olympics


This seems impressive.  Looks like you can stream up to 4 events online.  There’s some weird events in there you never see on TV!

I’d like to take a moment to thank my parents for helping me get into the Mac world.  Aaand amped0ut for… hmm…  what works here.  ..for pulling me away from the light in time!  Grab my hand, Carol Anne! Go into the light!  DON’T Go into the light!
