Colossal carbon tubes

Their name sounds like an advertisement for a Monster Truck Show, but the future of carbon looks better and better every month. I have long been a proponent of pushing for lighter but stronger vehicles, perhaps made of carbon nano or, now, colossal tubes, thereby reducing the size of the engine needed for practical acceleration, velocity, and torque.



Physicsworld.com points to an announcement of the Colossal Carbon Tube from Los Alamos.

Very cool.
