phys.org...

maybe should be breaking news...(i dont know if the science guys here know this yet......)
But found this whilst researching some unrelated tripe.....
Is this then an answer to some of the problems besetting the nuke industry?
I hope the science guys have a slant on this for us as it looks hopefull on the outset...at least to me....
any opinions?

Graphene seems to be the answer to many things.

Give it a year or two....I'm sure someone will come along and tell us it will be the end of us.

Either way...it is an amazing material.

I've done some research on graphene recently and it is truly amazing stuff... Soon as they get a reliable method to produce it and handle it I think it is going to revolutionize pretty much everything! Have you seen it clear up an oil spill too? You can then just ring it out and get your oil back!


At the moment they have found a way to grow graphene so I think usable products won't be too far around the corner!

Yep I am surprised we havent gotten a few pronouncements yet

Aurely somebody has a better grasp of the possibilities than we do so far......
Id like to hear a few ideas as to how this might be used to help the Fukishims clean up, and why hasnt it been applied?
Is it a lack of production methods or just a lack of timely application to the problem?
The massive sea water injections to the cores of the reactors could be rendered harmless before being returned to the ocean......perhaps even better ways of neutralising the sites that have solid contaminations as well?
