In my interview with Nicole Christian yesterday I talked about the carbon future. Here is the sort of thing I was referring to: "(Graphene) is 200 times stronger than steel, and many times thinner than a human hair. It has the potential to accelerate internet speeds by 100 times, and recharge a lithium-ion battery 10 times as fast as a normal battery." What's interesting to me is that this is just the latest discovery to come out of manipulating carbon in interesting ways (remember nanotubes, anyone?).
