Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world...yet

241350 ratings | 11117552 views
Graphene is a form of carbon that could bring us bulletproof armor and space elevators, improve medicine, and make the internet run faster — some day. For the past 15 years, consumers have been hearing about this wonder material and all the ways it could change everything. Is it really almost here, or is it another promise that is perpetually just one more breakthrough away?

I dont like dudes comment",we don't want them to care iif its maeof graphine or not ,only that its better and lasts longer than plastic" my problem is that plastic was as REVOLUTIONARLLY" marketing bombardment and everything that could have plastic in it dose....low n behold plasticputs out a invisible gas that is affecting our immune system, but only "some "are affected.so if graphine deals with electric conductivity or gravity what is the possible military application related to rdif chips and electromagnetic feild disruption manipulation to frequencies that might better attain a stronger influence on feilds of magnetism that are in human body and chips ( rdif) could' have on humans in their never ending pursuit of control over the population of the world and their obedience compliance and unknowingly subjugation to the testing of technologies thru innocent consumer products and the effectiveness of possible human reaction to electromagnetic energy transmission in the products made from graphine.and or any possible successes, or failures of frequencies that can be minipulatable in humans. Just thinkin out side the cage( what is a box, )

Foldable screens are graphene, but best application of it is to filter water from the sea to pure water. Just fill a huge tank of sea water and on the bottom put a graphene glass and pure water comes out. So remember when the foldable phone breaks, you can create your own device to have pure water from any water. They will not give you these filters, they want us to suffer not to have health.

Not too sure about using it for certain items regarding going in to space. As even graphene has it's melting/break down point which might be bad on impact ⚠️🤷🏻‍♀️

Graphene Charging Pads [GCP] (with waterproof cover) in public areas. Grabbing a bit to eat in a fancy restaurant, but your phone is almost drained! You don't want to get up and plug in the charger at an outlet next to another customer's table... Conveniently, this restaurant has a GCP where you can easily place your phone on top to charge it. Saves your phone, public image, and promotes great table manners (no using phone during a meal)... MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Is it carbon or a carbon base element. Everything on the planet has carbon or carbon based element, so what graphene has always been around and where is the most potent form of carbon found floating.

ah technophilic hype directed at scientifically illiterate people. Scientists have been using graphene in the lab since the 1960s this is not new. That anyone got a Nobel prize for this is the really amazing thing.

Heard that newscaster saying an elevator to the moon? You do realize the Earth Rotates right? And the Moon revolves around the Earth. RIGHT?!

+salmaan ejaz how is it unethical and stupid? i dont think you really know what it is, check it out please it is statistically a MUCH safer way than the old school fly up and out. it is something that 99% of scientists agree is the future of space travel
salmaan ejaz (9 days ago)
+JkMusic Even so, it's pretty unethical and stupid. Theres so much that could go wrong, you'd expect a toddler to come up with the idea.
JkMusic (9 days ago)
you do know they dont mean an elevator to the moon right? the big problem with space travel is fighting gravity... the elevator is supposed to take you up past earths atmosphere and then fly from there.

Comparing plastic and graphene is not a good perception to truly discover all the new propretyes of materials in nano size like graphene,cooper,iron and so on.the lest of new effect are limiteless and yes graphene and all nano materials are a revolution in disguise. Super conductivity and so much More!
