Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

The potential is to use this material with graphene (a conductor) and graphene oxide (an insulator) to cover all the electrical characteristics needed in a device. But perhaps boron nanotubes and borene are the next new things?
