What would a space elevator tether made from 2D materials look like? – Part Two: A tale of two tethers

In the previous post, I made a prediction that a Space Elevator tether created from multi-layered single crystal graphene would look metallic and probably mirror-like.  A graphene manufacturer has been in touch. They are one of the few companies in the world that can make polycrystalline sheet graphene and layer it up. They told me …

Graphene dough and graphenic glass

We are finding out how useful graphene and graphene oxide powders can be.  Right now in 2019 graphene is being used to make quieter cars, ‘greener’ concrete and stronger industrial plastics. The graphene in these products is nanoplate graphene made from graphite.  Manufacturing companies understand how to make graphene as powders and dispersions. However, handling these …
