EDUCATE: Yourself on the darkest material on earth.

MIT have accidentally created the blackest black on earth while experimenting with ways to grow carbon nanotubes on electrically conducting materials. Don’t worry, we have no idea what that means either. The new material is 10 times darker than Vantablack (formerly the world’s darkest substance) and absorbs up to 99.995% of natural light. In an art piece called ‘Redemption of Vanity’ (pictured) MIT’s in-house artist coated a 2 million dollar, 16.78-carat diamond in the material, causing the resplendent gem to appear as a lifeless, floating black void. Very symbolic stuff.

Astrophysicists believe the new substance could be used as a kind of ‘star shade’, protecting space telescopes from unwanted glare and light pollution so they can see exactly what they want to see. Brian Wardle, professor of aeronautics and astronautics at MIT, says that the blackest black is still a moving target. “Someone will find a blacker material, and eventually we’ll understand all the underlying mechanisms, and will be able to properly engineer the ultimate black” he told MIT News Office.
