Tiny 'tubes' and big dreams

Abstract:
Like the old Seinfeld show, the story of nanotubes is a story about nothing. Or nearly nothing. To the naked eye, a vial of nanotubes looks like a fine black powder, the sort of stuff you can wipe off the disks of your car's brakes. "It's basically soot," said Peter J. Burke, a researcher at the University of California at Irvine.
