Great for filling up space in plane, light and strong. Better than aluminum alloys probably
Really good insulator
is compressible to 90%
stick in inflatable habitat, less room and insulates really well
APPLICABLE TO EVERYTHING
and 3-d printed
nice and cheap soon maybe
filter your pee to drink it again
fuel tanks filled with this stuff absorbs fuel and keeps it structurally sound
Carbon cycle, use carbon and turn it into usable stuff, i.e. graphene
less carbon in carbon cycle = less carbon pollution
never builds up gunk or stuff in battery, because its not chemical based.
Good for the environment
If we go to polar ice caps on Mars or something, we stick a graphene filter and water cracking thing and bingo bango bongo we have a supply of hydrogen fuel and oxygen.
Graphene is the next plastic
Plastic is bad, uses crude oil and doesnt decompose
Graphene can be used from readily abundant sources of carbon (the entire ecosystem is carbon-based) and 100% recyclable.
Plastic is not 100% recyclable, depending on plastic type. And people just throw that stuff away anyways.
"If they absorb moisture they usually suffer a structural change, such as contraction, and deteriorate, but degradation can be prevented by making them hydrophobic. " So no fuel cells.
If tehy contract, then perfect for clean-ups
ez air filters
best surgical mask or somethin
super speedy ambulance thing
"Commercial manufacture of aerogel 'blankets' began around the year 2000, combining silica aerogel and fibrous reinforcement that turns the brittle aerogel into a durable, flexible material. The mechanical and thermal properties of the product may be varied based upon the choice of reinforcing fibers, the aerogel matrix and opacification additives included in the composite"
