Finally! Some new news about Carbon Nanotubes!
New research by MIT scientists suggests that carbon nanotubes — tube-shaped molecules of pure carbon — could be formed into tiny springs capable of storing as much energy, pound for pound, as state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, and potentially more durably and reliably.
Found by two cuties from MTI (if the picture is correct). (I knew I should have gone to MIT!)
