New Material Invented @ MIT

Possibilities seem endless for this, including space stations, deep space travel, and new planet colonization…

Also newly discovered at MIT: A bunch of new billionaires :dollar: :dollar: :dollar: :exclamation:


Will be interesting to see how it fails when stressed beyond its structural limits. Hopefully if they put it on cars as a coating, it bends and doesn’t fracture to leave sharp edges.

Yes…article mentions its potential use as bulletproof glass replacement as well as a coating (I guess to replace current clear coat technology, e.g. ceramic coating?). Unclear at the moment…

Comments at bottom are interesting and informative as well.

How it’s used will be determined a lot by other key characteristics. For aerospace: Heat resistance (melting temp.) and extreme cold resistance.

But if this is affordable and formable, the for a lot of thugs will be great, especially automotive weight reduction.

I’m a little pissed about this because I’ve been working recently on developing an alloy of Adamantium, Vibranium, and Mithril. But now…sigh…what’s the point.


You left out unobtanium.


Handwavium trumps all.
