Route to Carbyne: Scientists Create Ultra-Long 1D Carbon Chains
Apr 9, 2016 by Editors
An international team of researchers, led by Dr. Thomas Pichler from the University of Vienna, has presented a novel method to grow stable, ultra-long linear carbon chains.
Even in its elemental form, the high bond versatility of carbon allows for many different well-known materials, including diamond and graphite. A single layer of graphite, named graphene, can then be rolled or folded into carbon nanotubes or fullerenes, respectively. To date, Nobel prizes have been awarded for both graphene and fullerenes.

sherlew99: What a fascinating concept. Well the air above would occupy an area of space. Plus the basic word "space" is just a common term that fails to include the vast, wonderful weirdness out there between all objects out beyond our world.
