Carbon nanotube 'space camouflage' coating invented

The material "acts as a perfect black cloth that can completely conceal the 3D structure of the object".

To put his theory to the test his team etched a tiny 3D image of a tank out of silicon.

When viewed through a microscope the tank's contours could be clearly seen under white light.

However, when the nanotube coating was applied the tank's structure disappeared and could not be distinguished from the background.

But, wait there's more: NASA announced that they created the same technology two weeks ago. The carbon nanotube coating can absorb more than 99% of visible, ultraviolet, infrared and near-infrared light.

Maybe, this is why we can't see the Mothership!!! ;-P
