Graphene - A new super material

Graphene: The Superstrong, Superthin, and Superversatile Material That Will Revolutionize the World

Graphene is a sheet of carbon atoms that is light, flexible, stronger than steel and a better conductor of electricity than copper. It's still in the development stages, but getting used in many products and processes already. Even though its inventors won the Nobel prize for it in 2012, it's practically unknown to the general public. Joseph Meany co-authored the book, "Graphene: The Superstrong, Superthin, and Superversatile Material That Will Revolutionize the World," and he stopped by The Roadhouse to tell us all about graphene.
