Stephen Steiner of team DeltaX was here at ISDC2008 today, showcasing and explaining carbon nanotubes to the Exhibit attendees. Here is a short video of him doing so. I apologize for the crappy audio.
In Stephen’s hand is a short piece of carbon nanotube ‘tether’. At the end of the video, I zoom in on a larger piece of carbon nanotube ‘fabric’ that Stephen brought.
Incidentally, I had a very interesting talk with both Stephen and Ben Shelef of Spaceward about the possible health hazards of carbon nanotubes. I’ll have more to say about this in a near-future post, but just let me say now that I am much reassured…
