Science is nuts. Thats a huuuuuge understatement, but I have no idea how else to simply put it. The evolution of human development has been ludicrous since the Industrial Revolution. I mean, we could spend the rest of our lives talking and focusing on that subject and only make a minuscule dent to what it encompasses. But that is something in and of itself, the reason science came to mind is because of a newly developed material called carbon nanotube. And my eyes were just introduced to some new surf technology using that material. I'll let the article from Transworld Business give a bit more detail. Pay attention to the results from the structural strength samples toward the bottom...Enlight Earth, LLC and Eric Arakawa Designs have teamed up to create a new “carbon nanotube surfboard,” a material that’s more than 14 times stronger than carbon fiber. According to a release: This board was hand shaped and uses single wall carbon nanotube infused Epoxy making it one of the strongest and lightest surfboards in the world. Nano technology is definitely the wave of the future; the best phrase to describe the amazing abilities of NANO is “Surface Area”. These particles are so small that they have many times the surface area of regular particles, being that surface area is far greater it allows for a lot more electro-chemical reaction, which can make a small wrist watch battery have the power of multiple 9 volt batteries and a bonding area which can be used to fill in the gaps for amazing structural strength. A quick comparison of the tensile strength of different materials will show that Nano materials far exceed the strength of anything known to man… Structural strength examples:Aluminum alloy Strength (Mpa) 600Steel Strength (Mpa) 2,000Silicone Carbide Strength (Mpa) 3,440Carbon Fiber (AS4) Strength (Mpa) 4,300Carbon Nanotube Strength (Mpa) 62,000 http://www.enlightearth.com
