Paper Stronger Than Steel

Buckypaper-Apaper that looks like ordinary carbon paper-could revolutionize the way everything from airplanes to TV are made. It is ten times lighter but potentially 500 times stronger than steel when stacked together.Unlike conventional composite materials,though,it conducts electricity like copper or silicon and disperses heat like steel or brass.
Researchers at Florida State University have developed Bucky paper from tube-shaped carbon molecules.Due to this unique properties ,it is envisioned as a wondrous new material for light,energy-efficientaircrafts and automobiles,more powerful computers,improved TV screens and many other products.
