Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world...yet

Описание

Graphene is a form of carbon that could bring us bulletproof armor and space elevators, improve medicine, and make the internet run faster — some day. For the past 15 years, consumers have been hearing about this wonder material and all the ways it could change everything. Is it really almost here, or is it another promise that is perpetually just one more breakthrough away?

What's Graphene And Why It'll Soon Take Over The World

What's Graphene And Why It'll Soon Take Over The World

What is graphene? What is it used for? The most amazing thing about this semi-metal of the future is the fact that you can produce it yourself in your living room! What is graphene, and why is it so amazing? One of the things that makes graphene so cool is that it’s the thinnest material you can imagine. It's just one atom thick! This means this material is mathematically 2-dimensional. And you can still hold this single layer of atoms in your hands! Surprisingly, graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! TIMESTAMPS: Why graphene is so amazing 1:05 How graphene was discovered 1:48 How expensive graphene is 2:15 What the properties of graphene are 2:41 How graphene can be used 4:50 Can you make graphene at home? 9:59 #graphene #thinnestmaterial #graphenelayers Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! - Dr. Konstantin Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim discovered the wonder-material in 2004 at the University of Manchester. They were examining how efficient graphite is as a transistor. The story goes that graphene appeared thanks to sticky tape! - Graphene used to be incredibly expensive to manufacture. It cost a whopping $1,100 to produce enough graphene to cover the head of a pin. However, by the end of 2015, you could buy 0.35 oz of graphene for $1,000. - Graphene is incredibly stretchy. It can stretch as much as 25% of its length! This material is also really stiff. Actually, it’s the hardest material people know about — even harder than diamonds, and that says a lot! - One more great thing about graphene is its relationship with electricity. This material carries electricity more quickly, more precisely, and more efficiently than any other known material. - Graphene may be the answer to the water crisis many countries are facing. If we make membranes from graphene, they would be able to let water through while filtering out salt at the same time. - One layer of graphene is impressive enough. Can you imagine what you could achieve with 2 layers of this super material? Nothing short of incredibly strong body armor. - If producers start to use graphene in gadget manufacturing, we might end up with smartphones that can be bent in any direction. One of graphene’s main properties is its flexibility. - Graphene can be used in the beauty industry as well. It will be the perfect alternative to current hair dyes, most of which are still toxic and damaging to hair. - Well, you can potentially make graphene at home, provided you have enough time and patience to do so.

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens by hand

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens by hand

In 1977, twin golden records were sent into space on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft. Still sailing through space at nearly 60,000 km per hour, the records contain sound, songs, and images from earth. But how did NASA include images on an analog record? Here, we decoded the audio, and see the images the way that aliens were intended to see them. Special thanks to Ron Barry for walking us through his own audio decoding process, which got us excited in the story over a year ago. You can read about his own adventure and watch his process produce results in real-time in his own video in the links below: https://boingboing.net/2017/09/05/how-to-decode-the-images-on-th.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibByF9XPAPg&feature=youtu.be Link to Manuel’s code on GitHub: https://github.com/aizquier/voyagerimb Link to the full audio data: https://soundcloud.com/user-482195982/voyager-golden-record-encoded-images The Verge’s sponsors play an important role in funding our journalism, but do not influence editorial content.

Most AMAZING Materials Of The Future!

Most AMAZING Materials Of The Future!

Check out the most amazing materials of the future! This top 10 list of the strangest and coolest materials shows that science is getting very futuristic nowadays! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "UNSOLVED Mysteries That Cannot Be Explained!" video here: https://youtu.be/-4affLOd_7Q Watch our "Most Amazing Cities Found UNDERWATER!" video here: https://youtu.be/rUqxhYJqGhU Watch our "MYSTERIOUS Things Discovered In WEIRD Places!" video here: https://youtu.be/VtiF8vhBLHY 13. Aerogel Aerogel holds 15 entries in the Guinness Book of Records for material properties, more than any other material. It is the world’s least dense solid. Sometimes called “frozen smoke”, aerogel is made by the supercritical drying of liquid gels of alumina, chromia, tin oxide, or carbon. It’s 99.8% empty space, which makes it look semi-transparent. Aerogel is also a fantastic insulator. If you had a shield of aerogel, you could easily defend yourself from a flamethrower. It stops cold and it stops heat. You could even build a warm dome on the Moon. Aerogels have unbelievable surface area in their internal fractal structures. Cubes of aerogel with just an inch on one side may have an internal surface area equivalent to a football field. Aerogel is currently being used as an insulation product, thickening product in cosmetics, laser targets, blankets, in space suits, military armor, and in particle physics, just to name a few. Fun fact: NASA used an aerogel to trap space dust particles aboard the Stardust spacecraft. The particles vaporize on impact with solids and pass through gases, but can be trapped in aerogels. And to think that Aerogel was created from a bet! 12. Carbon nanotubes Carbon nanotubes are long chains of carbon held together by the strongest bond in all chemistry, the sacred sp2 bond, even stronger than the sp3 bonds that hold diamonds together! Carbon nanotubes have numerous remarkable physical properties, including ballistic electron transport, which makes them ideal for electronics, and so much tensile strength that they are the only substance that could be used to build a space elevator. Yup! Just like the one that Google is trying to build!! Nanotubes could be used to build a pipe that transports materials and maybe even humans to the International Space Station or the moon! The specific strength of carbon nanotubes is 48,000 kilonewtons per kg. The previous record holder for structural strength was high-carbon steel, with a measly 154 kilonewtons per kg. That’s 300 times stronger than steel. You could build towers hundreds of kilometers high with it. Or the world’s strongest, and tiniest straw. Your pick. 11. Metamaterials “Metamaterial” refers to any material that gains its properties from structure rather than composition. Metamaterials have been used to create microwave invisibility cloaks, 2D invisibility cloaks, and materials with other unusual optical properties. Mother-of-pearl gets its rainbow color from metamaterials of biological origin. Some metamaterials have a negative refractive index, an optical property that may be used to create “Superlenses” which resolve features smaller than the wavelength of light used to image them! This technology is called subwavelength imaging. Metamaterials would be used in phased array optics, a technology that could render perfect holograms on a 2D display. These holograms would be so perfect that you could be standing 6 inches from the screen and not even notice it’s a hologram. 10. Aluminum Bubble Wrap Imagine your favorite packing-based stress reliever, except made of metal. OK, metallic bubble wrap might not be quite as easy to pop, but it could be a heck of a lot more useful. A team of engineers from North Carolina State University have developed a new form of aluminum bubble wrap, which they claim could revolutionize packaging and protective equipment. The scientists take a thin sheet of aluminum, then use a studded roller to form small indents in the sheet. Unlike its polyethylene counterpart, these voids are then filled with a foamed material like calcium carbonate, before being sealed with another flat sheet of metal. The result is a series of bubbles that absorb masses of energy, weighs 30 percent less than regular sheet metal, and yet are nearly 50 times stronger. It's easy to make, not too expensive, and could soon be used in everything from shipping containers for fragile goods to bike helmets. Just don't be tempted to try and pop it.

The story of 'Oumuamua, the first visitor from another star system | Karen J. Meech

The story of 'Oumuamua, the first visitor from another star system | Karen J. Meech

In October 2017, astrobiologist Karen J. Meech got the call every astronomer waits for: NASA had spotted the very first visitor from another star system. The interstellar comet -- a half-mile-long object eventually named `Oumuamua, from the Hawaiian for "scout" or "messenger" -- raised intriguing questions: Was it a chunk of rocky debris from a new star system, shredded material from a supernova explosion, evidence of alien technology or something else altogether? In this riveting talk, Meech tells the story of how her team raced against the clock to find answers about this unexpected gift from afar.

88,000 tons of radioactive waste – and nowhere to put it

88,000 tons of radioactive waste – and nowhere to put it

The United States produces 2,200 tons of nuclear waste each year…and no one knows what to do with it. The federal government has long promised, but never delivered, a safe place for nuclear power plants to store their spent fuel. This means that radioactive waste is piling up all over the country. We visited one of the worst places where the waste is stuck: a beachside power plant uncomfortably close to both San Diego and Los Angeles. And we asked the people in charge of the waste there: what happens now?

The Flat Earth movement: People who ignore science

Flat-Earthers will tell you that not only is the Earth shaped like a Frisbee, but also that Man has never gone to the Moon, that footage of floating astronauts is faked, and the sun is tiny, hovering above our disk-shaped planet. It's a sign of a lack of faith in science, by people who only choose to believe what they can see for themselves. Correspondent Brook Silva-Braga talks with YouTube host Patricia Steere (who thinks NASA is part of a conspiracy); Thomas Nichols, author of "The Death of Expertise" (who talks about a reverse-snobbery expressed against the well-educated); and Flat Earther "Mad Mike" Hughes (who ascended 1,800 feet in a self-built rocket to see if the Earth actually curves.

10 Exercises All Men Should AVOID!

10 Exercises All Men Should AVOID!

These are 10 exercises all men should avoid. Not only should you stop doing these exercises but you should never do them again. These are the worst gym workout mistakes if you're trying to avoid an injury. You'll learn about exercises that cause shoulder impingement, lower back pain, and knee problems. 🔥 FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d4f?utm_source=ytube&utm_term=avoid Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2wh08Bj TIMESTAMPS: #1 Exercise to avoid: Selectorizer Ab Machine 0:44 #2 Exercise to avoid: Behind the Head Shoulder Press 3:13 #3 Exercise to avoid: Smith Machine 5:05 #4 Exercise to avoid: Hip abduction and adduction machine 6:43 #5 Exercise to avoid: Seated Torso Rotation Machine 7:33 #6 Exercise to avoid: Upright Row 8:15 #7 Exercise to avoid: Lap Pull Down Behind The Head 9:45 #8 Exercise to avoid: Leg Press Machine 10:44 #9 Exercise to avoid: Leg Extensions & Leg Curls 11:41 #10 Exercise to avoid: Back Hyper Extension Machine 12:19 How many times have you done an exercise & then as soon as you finish you feel pain. You might feel it in your lower back or your shoulder but you find yourself thinking did I do something wrong or does this exercise just suck. Well it really isn't always you. There are a lot of exercises out there that are plain bad for you & they only continue to exist just because they've been passed down from one misinformed gym to the next, & noones been smart enough to realize that these common exercises are no good. So today we're going over 10 exercises that all men should avoid & these exercises aren't only exclusive to men. Women should avoid these exercises as well it's just that in this video we'll be sticking to exercises that i usually find men doing wrong. The very first one that I want to start with is actually a group of exercises that guys are drawn to like moths to a flame. I'm talking about all the selectorizor ab machines at your local gym. The machines that you usually start by sitting down pulling out the pin, selecting your weight, then grabing some handles behind your head & doing crunches. These machines are not only a waste of time but they are also dangerous for your lower back. All these selectorizor ab machines are locked into a range of motion, meaning that your joints & your disks can't travel down their natural path, you can only travel down the path that the machine has set for you. Even if you adjust the machine to your body perfectly, which by the way is very hard to do, but even if you somehow had a machine customized for your body you can still easily run into lower back issues because you're still locked in a set range of motion throughout the entire exercise. Besides a greater potential for a lower back injury you will also get significantly less results from these machines than if you stuck to regular ab exercises like crunches, hanging knee tucks, & declined situps. The reason is once again due to the fact that your locked into a range of motion. The core's main responsibility is stabilization. And it's important to improve your functional core strength because your core isn't only responsible for stabilizing your trunk but it stabilizes your whole body. It is the bridge that connects your lower body to your upper body. When you're locked in a range of motion you take all of the stabilization normally required for ab exercises out of the movement. The really ironic part is that those abdominal stabilizer muscles that you're not working on these machines are very important to strengthen in order to prevent the lower back injury that you'll likely experience on one of these machines. Due to the fact that you're not working your stabilizers you're missing out on all of those deep tissue abdominal muscles like your transverse abdominus & your only targeting mostly your rectus abdominus which is the very outer layer six pack looking muscle. The transverse abdominus is very important to work because not only does it help prevent injury, but it also pulls your stomach in keeping everything nice & tight giving you that flat stomach look. If you want to make your ab exercises tougher use weights by simply holding a dumbbell or a plate either behind your head or accross your chest while doing regular traditional ab exercises. Once again if you don't know where to start start with exercises like stability ball crunches, declined situps, & hanging knee tucks. The next exercise you should avoid is the behind the head shoulder press. First off there is absolutely no advantage to going behind your head. None. Even though I'm sure some old school guys will be disagreeing with me in the comments below you can research this yourself & you'll find that when you go behind the head you're still targeting the same muscles that you would if you went in front of your head & there's no advantage when going behind your head that will allow you to build your shoulder muscle faster.

25 STRONGEST Materials Known to Man

25 STRONGEST Materials Known to Man

Diamonds are the strongest materials known to man, right? You might be surprised to find out they are not. In fact, you may be surprised to discover some of the items considered as some of the toughest items man has ever known. Check out these 25 strongest materials known to man. We are always looking for the strongest materials. It allows us to create things that can withstand more abuse. Things like taller buildings, stronger cars, and protection for law enforcement. But contrary to what you might think, these stronger items are not bigger or heavier. Often, they are smaller and lighter. Care to find out which are the strongest materials known to man? Then check out our list (and our photo credits and sources) and let us know in the comments below how you think these materials could be used: http://list25.com/25-strongest-materials-known-to-man/ SUBSCRIBE - http://bit.ly/2uwq6BJ Follow us on: List25 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/list25 List25 Instagram: https://instagram.com/list25/ List25 Twitter - https://twitter.com/list25 List25 Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/list25/ See more lists on our website: http://list25.com By now, we’re pretty sure that you’ve heard that diamonds are the strongest materials known to man. However, this isn’t necessarily true. There are materials that are tougher than diamonds such as Carbyne. But even if the material is not tougher than diamond, it impressive to see how durable some materials can be. Take Graphene for example. A one atom thick sheet is 200 times stronger than steel. You’re probably familiar with Kevlar. Used in bullet proof vests, Kevlar has a tensile strength that is 8 times that of steel and can with stand temperatures reaching 450℃.

It costs 70 MILLION dollars per kg! But why?

It costs 70 MILLION dollars per kg! But why?

Sometimes science can be expensive!!! I frequent deal with stable isotopes which can happily reach tens of thousands of dollars per gram. In this case ~$70 000 per gram for 41K. In this case I only had about 1/3rd of a gram. Now it might seem like a lot, but bear in mind this is not really something you can sell. The market for 41K in the entire world is almost nothing. Indeed the only thing that gives it value is it costs so much to make it. Thankfully, this stuff did good work! We got some of the best measurements on the hydration of potassium in the world!! Indeed they were good enough to highlight some of the previous knowledge about 41K, to the point where I had to bring this sample out of retirement and send it back to the reactor to check the properties of the nucleus. I wont be adding this to the patreon feed, but many thanks to all those who support this channel! https://www.patreon.com/Thunderf00t

The Strange Science of the Impossible Burger | WIRED

The Strange Science of the Impossible Burger | WIRED

It's called the Impossible Burger and it looks, feels, tastes and smells like ground beef, even though it's made entirely of plants. It's all thanks to science and genetically engineered yeast. WIRED explores how close it comes to the real thing and if it's 100% safe. The story of the fake meat on a mission to change the world with one part soy plant, one part genetically engineered yeast—and one part activism. Ingredients include wheat protein, to give the burger that firmness and chew. And potato protein, which allows the burger to hold water and transition from a softer state to a more solid state during cooking. Still haven’t subscribed to WIRED on YouTube? ►► http://wrd.cm/15fP7B7 ABOUT WIRED WIRED is where tomorrow is realized.

Why Tesla is building city-sized batteries

Why Tesla is building city-sized batteries

We talked to the co-founder of Tesla, JB Straubel, about why giant batteries are crucial to the future of power grids everywhere. Batteries are becoming more useful at powering bigger things like bikes, cars, and soon, entire cities. We explore some of the zanier forms of energy storage already in use around the country.

10 Places Science Can't Explain

10 Places Science Can't Explain

Some of our planet's most mysterious places seem to defy the laws of science. Here are some of such. ►https://www.instagram.com/eskifymedia/ ►https://twitter.com/EskifyMedia ►https://eskify.com ► https://www.facebook.com/EskifyMedia/ ►Subscribe ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtNdZrjjurSTFv-JgvQjssw ►Second channel ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx58ZgF5V--kY4TJ37-rv-w The devil's kettle waterfall is believed by some to be a gateway to another universe or even to hell itself. The two streamed waterfall has baffled geologists for decades as no one can work out where the water flowing into the kettle leads. It's as if it simply disappears. But that's not the only mysterious water structure. In the amazon river is now known to be a boiling river hot enough to kill any creature to fall into it. It was thought nothing more than a myth until it's recent discovery and no one knows why the water is hot enough to boil. In India stands a small village known for having a high twin rate. It's obvious why the settlement is now known as twin town but less obvious why so many twins are born here. Suggested answers include the claim that government experiments secretly changed the genetics of locals decades ago. Perhaps the most mysterious location is the zone of silence in Mexico, a place known for magnetic phenomena and as a dead zone for radio. You will receive no radio signal while in the zone and don't expect your compass to be reliable. Also watch out for mutated animals or strange alien like figures - those are never a good sign.
