Diamonds are a space elevator’s best friend?

Diamond Nanothreads Could Support Space Elevator.

Just recently, a team from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia modeled the diamond nanothreads using large-scale molecular dynamics simulations and concluded that the material is far more versatile than previously thought and has great promise for aerospace properties. The simulation was published in early November.

Hmmmmm…I think it’s time I write an article on why space elevators will be impractical in most cases.

That said, a super light, super strong material has obvious applications all across the space industry, so I would classify this as a Potential BIG DEAL.
