I read an article in a scientific magazine that quoted from the economist
that there are devolpments concerning Bucky-balls. Anyone heard of this?
It seems that a chemist named Richard Smalley at the Rice University of Texas
found a way to make a structure with carbonmolecules that have a tube-kind
shape. They were able to contruct small (nanometers) fibers which are
very strong, even stronger than diamond and named them Bucky-tubes. Till now
they are the strongest fibers of today. Extraction of these miniscule fibers is
difficult so a practical use is still a question of time.
Can you picture this material in relating to kites?! just have to be patient
for a few years!
