Carbon Fiber

The third supermaterial I'm following closely is carbon fiber – a super plastic.

Carbon fiber is made of long, thin strands of carbon atoms.

It's 10 times stronger than steel and five times lighter.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane is made of 50% carbon fiber. This frame is what makes the Dreamliner plane 20% more energy-efficient than similarly sized planes.

You're going to see carbon-fiber composites used in cars and appliances as replacements for metal to make them lighter and more energy-efficient.
