    All atoms, all excitation states? Kind of a materials problem isn't it?
  1.  
    Oh, probably. Just engineering.

    Trying to make a battle cruser invisible may have some side effects. ;)

    This is exactly the same thing that keeps getting touted for increasing the efficiency of the collection of light in solar cells. Less reflection - more absorption (duh). When can we start taking a pass on nano structured light collector announcements?

    What about spacecraft?

    I mean with decent fusion reactors to supply power, cellulose can be obtained from GM algae to build all sorts of things on comets.

    Cardboard please, maybe with some spider silk.

    if Andrew owns it add some graphene.
