Nanotubes are widely applicable
Technology seems to follow a trend of exponential downsizing. Not more than 60 years ago, computers took up entire rooms. Current processors with more power than those ancient behemoths can fit on the surface of a dime.
Now, science has advanced so far that researchers are working at an atomic scale. Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field, and carbon nanotubes are at the forefront of that field. Nanotubes are nothing more than carbon atoms, precisely aligned to form a regular cylindrical pattern.
Just as carbon-composed diamonds are incredibly strong, carbon nanotubes possess outstanding strength, heat conductance, and unique electrical properties.
