After reading “Graphene: New Miracle Material” in the August issue of Newsmax, I’m convinced that this material will radically improve our lives over the next decade.
Since graphene is 200 times stronger than steel, 1000 times more efficient as a heat and electricity conduit than copper, 10 times faster than fiber optics for data transfer, allows a lithium-ion battery to store 10 times the power and charge 10 times faster and it’s thinner than paper and made from carbon – the fourth most abundant element in our universe (behind hydrogen, helium and oxygen).
If that doesn’t sound like the solution, I don’t know what would. This is the ultimate in going green: a renewable and reusable resource that is better than the ones we currently use.
We can have super-light, super-efficient transportation and technology. Cars, buses, trains and planes would save on fuel due to reduced weight while battery powered cars go much farther. Data transfers much faster to our devices that last much longer thanks to the super efficient battery.
Graphene, once in mass production, will be revolutionary.
