A quantum of science

In physics we do things and afterwards worry about whether they worked

Home-made graphene

I have just come across a youtube video, pointed out at Asymptotia, which gives detailed instructions on how to make graphene at home using a pencil and some gecko tape. It is one of the coolest physics I’ve come across, although I will only be able to look at my graphene when I have access to a microscope which I won’t until next week! This makes the end of my holiday something to look forward to, I suppose…
