using acetylene gas to deposit carbon nanotubes on pieces of silicon. Schindall says that the technology isn't much different from the kind used to produce microchips, and so mass production shouldn't be too difficult. Still, he said, ``It's one thing to postulate it, but that's a long way from being commercially viable and competitive in price." Schindall
Scientists have long known of the remarkable electro-mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes. They are 100 times stronger than steel, one-third the weight of aluminum and extremely conductive of both heat and electricity. This makes them extremely attractive for broad-based use, with the potential to augment or replace many current materials in end-user products.
An estimated $13 billion worth of nanotech-based products - including paints and cosmetics - were sold globally in 2004. Some projections expect that to grow to several trillion dollars' worth of products by 2014. It's an explosive development that affects the entire planet.
