Graphene will likely replace plastic as the disruptive and versatile supermaterial of the next century. We should all be thankful that this atomic-scale honeycomb lattice made of carbon atoms is a free and public innovation, rather than one guarded by patents!

Recently, it was discovered that graphene may be able to convert one photon into several electrons. In other words, graphene may convert light into electricity! http://actu.epfl.ch/news/graphene-multiplies-the-power-of-light/

Reference this board I assembled to learn more about how graphene may improve many technologies, including filtration, energy, optics, construction: http://learni.st/users/deconditioned/boards/21782-amazing-applications-of-graphene

"[R]esearchers have for the first time been able to grow a pure, self-renewing population of stem cells specific to the human foregut, the upper section of the human digestive system." Liver and pancreas transplants, with no risk of rejection, are on the horizon!

"Limitless water, from the world's second-largest river, the Congo, a benign climate and rich soil make it fertile, beneath the soil abundant deposits of copper, gold, diamonds, cobalt, uranium, coltan and oil are just some of the minerals that should make it one of the world's richest countries. Instead it is the world's most hopeless."
