Future planes, cars may be made of `buckypaper'

Future planes, cars may be made of `buckypaper' (AP)



TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - It's called "buckypaper" and looks a lot like ordinary carbon paper, but don't be fooled by the cute name or flimsy appearance. It could revolutionize the way everything from airplanes to TVs are made.



Buckypaper is 10 times lighter but potentially 500 times stronger than steel when sheets of it are stacked and pressed together to form a composite. Unlike conventional composite materials, though, it… Continue

Nanotechnology At NASA Could Play Medical Role On Earth

Nanotechnology At NASA Could Play Medical Role On Earth



By Katie Leitch

Posted: 29-July-2008



WASHINGTON—Startling changes can come over a material when it is manipulated at the atomic or molecular level—the only difference between graphite and diamond, for instance, is the arrangement of carbon atoms.



Those carbon atoms can also be arranged to form tiny, rolled-up cylinders called carbon nanotubes. Extremely sturdy and flexible, these nanotubes are 50,000… Continue

Imaging yields insights into 'nanomedicine' for cancer treatment



Polymer micelle This illustration depicts a tiny drug-delivery particle called a polymer micelle, which has been used in “nanomedicine” techniques to treat cancer. Researchers at Purdue University have discovered a possible new pathway for anti-tumor drugs to enter cancer cells using the micelles and proposed how to improve the design of the tiny drug-delivery particles.… Continue
