For the past couple years, graphene has found to be the superest of supermaterials over and over again in lab tests. But this carbon formation seems to have a major structural flaw— where the carbon atoms are lined up in near perfect hexagonal patterns, the stuff is super strong, but at the edges, or where the hexagonal pattern is not as perfect, it’s brittle as hell.
Right now, if you’re too drunk to do anything, you may not have a lot of options other than finding someone to drive you home and sleep it off. In the lab, an injection of nanocapsules has shown to stop drunkenness in mice with a quickness, which could lead to the development of a drug that would quickly get rid of alcohol impairment in humans.
Seems like every few weeks, someone finds some new amazing thing graphene can do. This time, it looks like the ever-magical and wondrous carbon configuration may be able to create the artificial muscles of the future.
