Scientists have finally made a substance that’s even stronger than graphene #NBIC https://t.co/lZdTVBE3Go

Carbyne is an elusive allotrope of carbon, first discovered some 50 years ago. Until now, it has never been synthesized successfully. Computer modeling suggested that the monodimensional chain of carbon atoms would be twice as strong as carbon nanotubes and stronger even than graphene , a super-tough honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms. The trouble was, carbyne was unstable. It was so reactive, in fact, that it was destroyed as soon as it was created.
