Carbon Nanotubes, Yet Again

Add carbon nanotubes to the list of items that we at WorldChanging can't get enough of.

Less scarring, less rejection -- oh, and a potential ability to connect to neurons, facilitating brain and nervous system implants. Carbon nanotubes are almost certainly a key structural component of a changed world...

Nancy Riffer:

Tech Research News link doesn't connect. Nanotube article from 1991 is fascinating.
