Among the many theoretical properties of graphene is its high resistance. This characteristic makes it not hard to imagine this material as a basis for bulletproof armor. A team of scientists from the University of Massachusetts has tested this resistance in the laboratory, and is confirmed to be 10 times higher than that of steel.

Although resistance of graphene has been tested in numerous studies under static conditions, is the first time that the material tested under extreme dynamic situations. Given the nature of graphene, formed by a single layer of carbon molecules arranged in a hexagonal grid, not at all easy to create...
