Buckypaper: Unlocking the Power of Nanotechnology

Buckypaper is one tenth the weight yet potentially 500 times stronger than steel when its sheets are stacked to form a composite. It could disperse heat like brass or steel and it could conduct electricity like copper or silicon. Rice University scientist Wade Adams says, “All those things are what a lot of people in nanotechnology have been working toward as sort of Holy Grails.”

It’s a car, it’s a plane, it’s…paper? Watch and learn how this revolutionary new carbon nanotube material could change the world and lead us toward a highly advanced, sustainable future.
