I just came across this on the big old internet and came across a new 'wonder material' called graphene I'm a skeptical myself probably because it seems to good to be true but wondered what some of you guys and gals thought about this. Here's a link about the material: http://www.graphene.manchester.ac.uk/story/properties/ This is an interesting statement: 'It was found that graphene is harder than diamond and about 300 times harder than steel. To put this into context, it will take the weight of an elephant balanced on a needle-point in order to break this one atom thick fabric! The tensile strength of graphene exceeds 1 TPa.' can anyone explain how this is possible?
