+ - Synthetic Materials Set New World Record for Greatest Amount of Surface Area->

Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "Researchers at Northwestern University, Illinois, have broken a world record in the creation of two synthetic materials, named NU-109 and NU-110, which have the greatest amount of surface areas of any material to date. To put this into perspective: if one were able to take a crystal of NU-110 the size of a grain of salt, and somehow unfold it, the surface area would cover a desktop. Additionally, the internal surface area of just one gram of the new material would cover one-and-a-half football fields."

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
