Carbon Nanotubes

This drawing is of a carbon nanotube. I recently learned how fascinating these little things were. The potential for the application of nanotubes is remarkable. This technology can allow us to create bulletproof body armor (Superman), invisibility cloaks (Harry Potter), and elevators to space (Charlie of Chocolate Factory fame). What is not beautiful about being able to live out some of the experiences shared by our favorite fictional characters?
