Feed your head with our best big, bad, bold ideas

Abstract:
Researchers in the multibillion-dollar glue industry are using nanotechnology to improve their products. A.T. Charlie Johnson, a physicist at the University of Pennsylvania, mixed tiny carbon nanotubes - tubes with walls of carbon atoms - into epoxy. "The nanotubes are very, very strong - among the strongest materials known," he told the New York Times, "and so the idea is that when you put the epoxy under some kind of load of some sort, if you can transfer some of that load to the nanotubes, the combined system will be stronger than the original epoxy."
