Massive Rice Nanotube Makes Guinness World RecordsApril 14, 2005
WHAT: Dozens of Rice students are teaming up this Earth Day to build one of the largest chemistry models ever constructed. At 1,000 feet horizontally, the bright blue model of a carbon nanotube will be as long as Houston’s tallest skyscraper, downtown’s JPMorganChase Tower. It will take 70-plus students four hours to build, and it’s so long it will spill across the campus’s main thoroughfare, forcing a traffic detour. Guinness World Records will certify it as the world’s largest nanotube model. Following assembly, 400 feet of the model will be carried to the Houston Museum of Natural Science (HMNS) for display.
