Blacker than black

There is a saying on the side of a billboard in Geelong (or at least there was last time I was there) that has stuck in my head….”I will stop wearing black when they come up with a darker shade”…

Well, time to stop wearing black and time to start wearing the new shade of black.

Check this light sucker out!

The Darkest Material on Earth is Now Even Darker

If you can spare a moment, check out the link, just for the photos mostly… It is staggering just how black this stuff is.
Hard to say from that article when we are going to see it at say, Target, in the form of clothing, but yeah, safe to say, when  you can, I will be lining up for a t-shirt in this stuff… It would look like you are wearing a black hole!

Very cool.

  1. I took note of your last two words – “Very cool”.

    In actual fact, if it converts all light to heat, it could be “very warm”.

    But don’t dispair, you could wear a water cooled singlet underneath.

    On that theme, I want some for a solar hot water.

    Yeah, great stuff.
