    According to you, you do, since you've spent quite some time studying reverse osmosis, membranes, and the like. But carry on being oblique and obtuse and infernally boring if you really have to.


    By the Blessed Colander you are a difficult cuss.

    I really do mean "who knows". It is a bizarre idea tossed into the blue and I gave it some minor thought while walking this morning but the comment still holds.

    Ah, so you were not waxing lyrical. Well then, I hope it lends power to your researches in that case, once you've figured it out (if you bother). How's all that going btw? Have you got the entire island reverse osmosing yet?

    I suppose I was growing lyrical, in a scientific sense. The comment was pure scientopoetry, cobbling together two disparate ideas without any supporting structure. But ideas close enough that some connection might eventually be found by mundane grubbers down there in the scientific facts.

    We poets are never appreciated.

    Posted By: AngusYes, but in single crystal unsupported sheets.
    That's of course correct, but also valid for particles in other types of ink.

    Sorry Andrew I have been a bit lapse lately with your education, I will have to give some extra homework.

    Scientists discover electrons moving like honey in graphene.

    Graphene leans on glass to advance electronics.

    Carbon films can give microchips energy storage capability

    @Andrew

    Your homework for this week, is to study the article below in reference to space cables, I am sure you will soon catch up with the others.

    Graphene is strong, but is it tough?

    It turns out that a combination of density and strength is the key parameter in space cable design. This unit is called the Yuri. This is the first thing to get right for any new material. After that, toughness is indeed important.

    A half a brownie point for that.

    You can go home 5 minutes earlier.

    "In 2014, Google X's Rapid Evaluation R&D team began the design of a Space Elevator, eventually finding that no one had yet manufactured a perfectly formed carbon nanotube strand longer than a meter. They thus decided to put the project in "deep freeze" and also keep tabs on any advances in the carbon nanotube field"

    No but he did give me the phone numbers of some very strange women who kept on talking about liver in jam jars, hmm I wonder if the phone numbers were meant for you?

    We were all led to believe that graphene would do everything including making the tea. Well, graphene does not make the tea.

    But your could make graphene out of the carbon in tea.
