I purchesed a small sample of graphene

It has very unusual effects on manetism as well

it was weird because when i first read this thread i'd never heard of graphene, then the next day i was watching "the big bang theory" and the episode was when Sheldon was trying to figure out how things pass through a graphene sheet and appear to have no mass.

It was just a funny moment, first time i'd ever caught the word being mentioned on tv, really hope to see it rapidly expand its potential

I bet they've already made tanks out of this stuff. Imagine if we used this technology to support and sustain society instead of destroy it!

The USA needs to point some of that $2tn defense budget at this product and get some mainstream developments going like Tanks, Bullets, Planes, Ships et al. Then we can all enjoy Graphene clothing, cars, bikes, iPhones, iPads et al.

This is a real game changer, a replacement for plastic and steel. If only I had the patent for it and could charge 1 cent everytime it was used.

Why should anybody be making tanks and bullets and death machines out of this? That's a terrible idea who would want that? We should use this technology to benefit mankind not literally destroy it.

Once I read this article I want to work with this material and find out what it has to offer. I cannot describe how interesting I find this material. Great Post!

bumping this thread! Could you imagine the implications of using Graphine in a 3d printer? This would revolutionize the world. The ability to make indestructible objects for free on a printer in your home!

I can not wait for the future now!

Even more so think about this. One day it will replace Steel, Silicon and Plastic - everything around you is composed of one of these three vital materials. It''s impossible to comprehend just how important this material will become.

Science Daily: Faster, More Sensitive Photodetector Created by Tricking Graphene

Too bad money and "Security" (aka control) spur everything along, but many wonderful positive changes will occur due to graphene as well!

Researchers at the Center for Nanophysics and Advanced Materials of the University of Maryland have developed a new type of hot electron bolometer a sensitive detector of infrared light, that can be used in a huge range of applications from detection of chemical and biochemical weapons from a distance and use in security imaging technologies such as airport body scanners, to chemical analysis in the laboratory and studying the structure of the universe through improved telescopes.

The graphene hot electron bolometer is particularly promising as a fast, sensitive, and low-noise detector of submillimeter waves, which are particularly difficult to detect.

Imagine what this could do for the paranormal genre!!
Ghost detection, should such things exist; healing devices using aura/chakra/meridian detection and changes! etc, etc. This stuff is changing our world!!

Researchers in Japan have reported successfully producing a single layer of silicon atoms - or silicene - opening a debate about what silicene actually is.

Back in April, a group of researchers in Europe, led by Patrick Vogt, reported "compelling experimental evidence for… two dimensional silicon" in a paper published in Physical Review Letters, the first reported synthesis of the material.

Now along comes

Graphene - the "wonder material" made of sheets of carbon just one atom thick - undergoes a self-reparing process to correct holes, researchers report.

Graphene's outstanding mechanical strength and electronic properties make it a promising material for a wide range of future applications.

But its almost ethereal thinness makes it easily damaged when working with it.

I want a graphene water filter.

Come to think of it. Why wont they share this stuff with the poor countries where they don't have good drinking water ?

Fifteen years from now ,I believe we will see graphene everywhere.
