The college, NASA and the Nanotube

Abstract:
What is microscopic and huge all at once? Itís the carbon nanotube, a minute filament that has big implications for both William and Mary and Associate Professor of Applied Science Brian Holloway. The nanotube, a quasi one-dimensional, molecular, tube-shaped structure is comprised of amorphous carbon similar to that in pencil lead. Due in large part to its carbon-carbon bonds, the carbon nanotube is one of the strongest substances available to man and therefore ideal for all sorts of technological applications.
