Exploring Carbon Nanotubes

Abstract:
Imagine an ultra-lightweight material that could lend incredible strength to a spacecraft and at the same time provide an array of other functions. For example, this material could serve as a superconductor that carries electricity with virtually no resistance. It could also collect and channel the sunlight’s energy to both propel the spacecraft and heat its interior to keep the astronauts comfortable. With applications like this in mind, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is providing ORNL with funding to find ways to line up single-walled carbon nanotubes.
