Reaserchers claim that graphene may make better bulletproof vests. In their search for finding a material that works better for bulletproof vests, scientists are turning their attention to graphene. Graphene is believed to work twice as better as the fabrics presently found in armors used by soldiers and the police.

Researchers have conducted tests in which they shot little silicon spheres at graphene and discovered the material may be a lot stronger than steel when it comes to absorption. Graphine has a structure consisting of many single atom thick carbon sheets.
