What if we could grow elevators to space? Or make phones that last for weeks without a charge? These things could someday be possible someday with an amazing material like carbon nanotubes. Alex takes you behind the curious way researchers create this super-material.
Awesome MIT videos on nanotubes, chemistry, mechanical engineering, MIT course materials, educator resources, and Alex's bio can be found here: http://k12videos.mit.edu/growing-nanotube-forests
