        You and me both, dude :) The first bionic arm with carbon nano tube muscles that can extend and contract is going to be amazing.

        Yes! For Space Elevators!

        Though this advancement may help bring that to a reality anyways- as we'll need non-carbon-nanotube materials for the actual elevator car, the stuff in orbit and the stuff connecting it to the earth itself.

        What a great tomorrow we have in store for us- if we can support the right technologies and not wipe ourselves out first.

    The takeaway here is the technique actually, in coercing the B2 crystals to form and disperse in the right way. The closest I ever got to metallurgy though was igneous petrography, haha, but the concepts are similar. This stuff is just so complex it's amazing that we engineer these metal alloys from the crystals on up.
