DailyTech – New Paper Is 500 Times Stronger Than Steel, 10 Times Lighter

New nanotube paper is expected to set the mark as the world’s strongest material by the year’s end, to be used in aircraft

The new paper is composed of intertwined carbon nanotubes.  Thanks to nanotubes’ excellent flexibility, it can bend like normal paper.  Multiple sheets can be stacked for rigidity.  However, unlike normal paper, it can be up to 500 times stronger than steel, its creators predict, while being a mere tenth of the weight.
