Carbon nanotube arrays grown that are 2cm long. More importantly the process can be scaled up A scalable process for building a lot of long carbon nanotubes could spin fibers into large components with most of the strength of carbon nanotubes. If we are able to make the light and strong carbon nanotubes cheaply for large objects then we get a lot of the early nanotechnology vision. Radically improved transporation and industry.
