I just saw this story on CNN. Here's a link to a recent Popular Mechanics article explaining the new material. This brings to mind the material supposedly found at the Roswell crah that couldn't be damaged by any means they tried. Very interesting.

While it is a cool technology, I often wonder if these inventors ever learn the lessons provided in science fiction movies. Or, do you suppose they use them as a road map?

Saw this one the other day
