Nanotube yarn sweater? Made in China to stop speeding bullets

Super-strong, highly conductive yarns made from extraordinarily thin carbon tubes could one day find use in spacesuits, bulletproof vests and radiation suits, researchers now suggest.

Carbon nanotubes are hollow pipes just nanometers or billionths of a meter in diameter – dozens to hundreds of times thinner than a wavelength of visible light. They can possess a range of extraordinary physical and electrical properties, such as being roughly 100 times stronger than steel at one-sixth the weight– via redwolf.newsvine.com
