British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.
The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.
Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.
It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.
The best kinds of laughter:
- Laughing so hard that your laugh becomes silent and you sit there clapping like a fucking seal
- Feeling a six-pack coming up
- Tears coming out of your eyes
#you know you’re fucked when its a combination of all three
I’m pretty sure this is the best picture of Daniel Radcliffe ever.
“Dan, we’re not at Hogwarts we’re-“
“Dan, that’s not a wand, it’s a branch on fi-“
“MY NAME IS HARRY POTTER AND I AM THE BOY WHO LIVED”
“No you’re not”
“YOU SHUT UP”
I just spat out my coffee
Oh look…. the representation of this entire god forsaken website
I’m saddened by the accuracy of this -Eleven
The accuracy hurts.
I HAVE NEVER HIT THE “REBLOG” BUTTON FASTER IN THE TWO YEARS THAT I’VE BEEN HERE.
If this doesn’t get an assload of notes, it’s because the idiots on here can’t stand looking in a goddamn mirror.
