Ummmm it would be the worst material to make heatsinks and rads from.

Say hello to plastic engines.

Holy... I just though of how efficient that would make it! Current engines are like 18% (since forever). The other 80% is ejected as heat. This has the potential to make engines 99%+ efficient!!!

A poll should be added. I want to know how many people believe that the material is real or fake, and how many people believe that it was his own greed or corporations' greed that prevented this from taken off.

Me, I just find it hard to believe that someone can create such a physics-defying material out of relatively common chemicals without any prior research. Many inventions are, in fact, chance discoveries, but this is still too hard to believe.

That sounds a bit conspiracy like. The whole thing sounds like a sham. Why would NASA not of gotten a hold of him by now? Claiming that it has withstood 75 Hiroshimas is one thing. Showing the data that backs up that claim is another and he clearly doesn't want to do that.

I don't know about this...if it is really this great I think places would be offering him 90% profits for sole rights and they would still make a killing. Governments would have stepped in and been using the stuff giving him what ever he wanted. The would have built a 2000 acre plant and hire the best staff they could find to have him make the stuff.

At this moment I am calling BS untill I actually get a piece of it in my hand. No way that this has been around all this time and No one capitalized on it unless the inventor purposesly hid it...but he supposedly had it getting tested all over the place.

I could be skeptical but how many inventions do I not know about that could of changed the world. Inventions that could of been hidden or discarded. For example, different forms of the steam engine have turned up in history over thousands of years and steam power wasn't taken seriously until a couple hundred years ago.

This is probably one of the few publicly known instances where an inventor created something revolutionary and had a wide enough scope to know what it was capable of. And he knows that if he sells it there is nothing stopping the person on the other end to do what ever they want with it. Even under controlled conditions he is taking a risk of someone reverse engineering it despite agreements. I'm sure there are other inventors that have came to the same realization and took their inventions to the grave.

Right now the wonder material isn't doing much of anything so how is that much different than saying it doesn't exist. In other words, until this plastic materializes in real products all it's going to be is a 'cool story.'
