Carbon Nanotube Yarn

I have been doing a lot of spinning lately, but I have never given any thought to spinning carbon nanotubes! "Carbon nanotubes are some of the strongest and stiffest materials known, and a growing area of research involves spinning them into flexible yarns – bundles of fibers that can be treated to produce superconducting cables, or electrodes for batteries or fuel cells." - Nature News Blog

Thank you, Keith, for the submission!
