    Great that means we can go up to using them for 20% of our electric power inteas of the former 10%. And since you still need sunlight that isn't available at night and during bad weather well you know...

    Good news for those of us who are seeking to mitigate our energy costs, I think.

    Good enough?

    I doubt it, but still good news.

    Carbon nanotube technology is going to do amazing things in many different industries.

    This kind of research is where we should be spending our money.
