Researchers on Austria have synthesized CARBYNE, a material which is 40 times stronger than diamond and twice stronger than graphene. Carbyne is an electrically neutral carbon atom with three non-bonded electrons. It also has very high reactivity which leads to its immediate destruction.
What is the most powerful thing in the universe?
That’s about the same amount of energy in 10 trillion trillion billion megaton bombs! These explosions generate beams of high-energy radiation, called gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), which are considered by astronomers to be the most powerful thing in the universe.
What is the hardest metal in the universe?
The Strongest Natural (Non-Alloy) Metals: Tungsten, Titanium, and Chromium
Tungsten has the highest tensile strength of any natural metal, but it’s brittle and tends to shatter on impact.
Titanium has a tensile strength of 63,000 psi.
Chromium, on the Mohs scale for hardness, is the hardest metal around.
