new horizons for lighter composite plies: regular carbon plies sound so much like yesterday now.

Well, that'll make an indestructible feather-light blade. But will it play better? LOL

Dr. Cho,

The new material's name is "graphene".

yes. 

they have been taking "small flakes of graphene and fusing them following a mesh-like structure".

That would indicate it's a new material deserving a new name; I am sure they are fighting over which name to choose at the time we discuss it here Tongue.

Steel is mainly made out of iron and we do not call it iron.

porous spongy graphene? how about Graphion? Graphix? or... Graphool? Wacko
