Diamond Nanothreads Could Build Us An Elevator To Space

Would you dress in diamond nanothreads? It’s not as far-fetched as you might think. And you’ll have a Brisbane-based carbon chemist and engineer to thank for it. QUT’s Dr Haifei Zhan is leading a global effort to work out how many ways (including space elevators) humanity can use a newly-invented material with enormous potential — diamond nanothread.
