Graphene has been the focus of supermaterial research for the better part of the last 2 decades. It’s incredibly strong while also being incredibly tiny. It could create revolutionary bulletproof armor, a space elevator, radically change medicine, or make our internet speeds faster.

All that raises the question, with so much potential, why isn’t graphene more closely woven into our everyday lives now? Verge Science takes a look in the fantastically produced video below.
