Carbon nanotube composite material could replace carbon fiber
from North Carolina State University via Gizmag
When people need a material that's strong yet lightweight, they usually look to carbon fiber. In the near future, however, they may instead choose to go with composite materials made from stretched carbon nanotubes. These materials could theoretically offer the same strength as carbon fiber at one-tenth the weight, or the same weight at 10 times the strength.
