According to a report from China's Xinhua news service, Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) is working on a graphene battery that would double the range of its electric cars to about 500 miles.
And while a graphene battery may seem far-fetched, scientists have made a lot of progress over the past year to bring it closer to reality.
This one advance is all Tesla needs to upend the entire auto market…
Stocks to Buy: A Recent Sell-Off Gave Us This "Miracle Material" Bargain
I was one of the first analysts to pronounce this as the "Golden Age of Materials Science."
You know what I'm talking about - all those "Miracle Materials" that are changing our lives: There are the advanced composites that lighten our airliners; the great plastics that increase the "cool factor" of today's cars - while also making them safer and more economical. They include one of earth's more abundant resources, and the new discoveries, such as graphene, that promise to revolutionize biotechnology, computers, and industry.To continue reading, please click here...
The Single-Best Way to Invest in Graphene Today
Imagine an "alternate reality" where it is possible to balance a Mack Bulldog tractor trailer on the sharpened tip of your No. 2 yellow pencil.
And imagine, also, that the tip of that same pencil is worth a small fortune.
This "reality" that I'm sketching out for you isn't something that I grabbed from the plot of one of those cheesy Sci-Fi Channel late-night movies.
In fact, this reality actually isn't one that I'd refer to as "alternate."
It's a reality - a certainty, in fact - that I've been studying, talking, and writing about for a long time.To read more, please click here...

How to Invest in Graphene as This "Miracle Material" Changes the World
Want to know why everyone is asking how to invest in graphene?
For starters: It's one of the strongest materials ever known.
It's also as light as a feather. And completely flexible.
Plus, it's not just going to change the latest inventions in the defense industry; it'll be used in everyday life.
For example, imagine charging your mobile phone or tablet in just 30 seconds.
Or pulling up your electric car to a charging station and having a full charge in under a minute.
Here's how graphene makes this future a possibility.Read More...
Four Ways to Play the "New Gold Rush" in Materials
Who would have thought that the new gold rush would be in material sciences?
We're talking about everything from rare earths that drive precision lasers to the cobalt needed for rechargeable batteriesRead More...
- Massive Breakthrough For Graphene Investors This incredible material is stronger than steel and lighter than a feather. It's going to have a pervasive impact on the U.S. economy - and the entire human race - by the end of this decade. Here are three ways to invest now. Read More...
A TV As Thin As Saran Wrap is Just the Beginning For these New Materials
Call it the "Graphene Factor"...
Discovered in 2004, this radical new material made from a single carbon atom has turned the world on its ear.
Since then, experts around the globe have heralded graphene as the hot new commodity that could change everything from satellites to semiconductors.
As it turns out, graphene is only a part of a much bigger story about a new generation of smart materials.
In fact, I've discovered five new materials besides graphene that will change the world, making early investors a fortune along the way.
But don't think for a minute that I've backed away from my belief in graphene since I wrote about this "Miracle Material" last December in this article.
Since then, my confidence in graphene's impact has only grown. Its uses seem almost endless.
With graphene we'll have flat-screen TVs as thin as Saran Wrap, nanotech devices that put the power of a mainframe computer in the palm of your hand and brain implants that combat Alzheimer's.
It's the perfect substance for what I call the Era of Radical Change. We have entered a period like none other in history. What was once science fiction is becoming science fact.
But graphene won't be the only new material pushing the limits of high tech...
See, scientists around the world are in their labs right now working on new materials that could affect everything from drugs to smart phones to space travel. And they're making huge strides.
As a result, science is set to hand us a whole new group of smart materials that will have a wide impact on the future of the whole planet.
Here are five of them...
New Material Number 1: How "Magic Moly" Makes Walls GlowOf all the promising new materials out there, this one comes closest to matching graphene's uses in electronics.
Like graphene, this new substance works in 2D, meaning it has height and width but virtually no depth. It's a lubricant officially known as molybdenum disulfide. But I just called it "magic moly."
