For centuries man has looked to the sky and with awe wondered what it would be like to fly. We even have some jokes about flying that include other animals.

When pigs fly!
is old expression related to the temperature in Hades getting cold. The implication is that it will never happen.

The Wright brothers were the first humans to fly on December 17, 1903.

Since then many methods of humans flying have occurred. Some are:

  • Planes
  • Helicopters
  • Rockets
  • Hang Gliders

A butterfly’s thoughts:

One cannot entirely trust to flowers that grow in pots," thought the butterfly, "they have too much intercourse with men. Andersen, Hans Christian; The Ice-Maiden: and Other Tales, pg 169. I have added some more text to this quote to show how a block quote tag will wrap, indent and italicize the quoted material. Thus, you should not need any quote marks for the block tags.

People who keep butterflies as pets and talk to them.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
