I saw an article on nanotube paper. There was even a picture of someone folding the stuff into oragami.
Considering nanotubes are one of the strongest substances known to man, how cool would that be for a sail material?
Kind of a "wouldn''t it be cool" post, but I thought I would share my thoughts.
Of course with current technology and prices you would be looking at a sail that costs millions of dollars, but on the other hand, short of shooting it with a high powered rifle, nothing is going to happen to it.
