This New Material Is Stronger Than Graphene And Diamond

There's something stronger than graphene, and diamond. This new carbon supermaterial is like the adamantium of stuff.
Created by the researchers from Rice University in Houston, they've calculated the properties of a new form of carbon that promises a stronger and stiffer material. It's called Carbyne, and it's a chain of carbon atoms linked by alternate triple and single bonds.
The models predict that Carbyne is a little stronger than both graphene and diamond, and it's twice as stiff as the stiffest known materials.
Astronomers have once thought they detected it in interstellar space a few years ago, in chains up to 44 atoms long. It's been thought of as too reactive to reliably create and study. Of course, up until now.
Flight simulators are devices that recreate an aircraft flight and the environment where the airplane flies. You could use it for various purposes, like simply having fun or trying out a design. The best part about flight simulator games is that it is also an ideal way to learn how to fly while it offers fun. Read more

It is just how we poor parents want them to grow up and that in our fantasy live it. Read more
