Did you know that graphene is invisible to the human eye, thinner than a human hair and 200 times tougher than steel? In this new ground breaking exhibition at the Museum of Science & Industry uncover the history of graphite and graphene, journey with scientists and artists exploring the cutting edge of material technology and investigate the wonders of a two dimensional world. First isolated by scientists at the University of Manchester in 2004, graphene is made from a single atom layer of carbon. It is super lightweight, super conductive and super strong! This 21st century wonder material is set to radically reshape the way we think, design and manufacture - from racing cars to rust-free paint, from mobile phones to medical science. The exhibition is a world premiere, created by the Museum of Science and Industry, in partnership with the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester.
