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.

How this "Miracle Material" was Discovered

Carbon-based graphene was initially discovered in the 1960s but rediscovered by two scientists, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, in 2004. They started tinkering with it in the lab and created microscopic flakes.

The real catalyst came when the two changed the flakes into extremely thin sheets. They even won the Nobel Prize for Physics for their work with graphene.

    graphene comes from grafite, right? are the mines in alabama and nevada worth a look?

    Graphene sounds very exciting – it seems to be able to vastly improve so many things. Archer Exploration in Australia has just achieved >99 %( Pure) Graphite. This is excellent for Graphene right ? Just when we think we hit our limits, along comes something exciting to challenge those limits !
