Meet the world's first 1,000 mph car

What has a jet engine, a rocket booster and travels on a set of aluminum wheels? It’s the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car (SSC) and it has plans to hit the world land speed record at 1,000 mph.

Researchers create high-quality graphene with shockingly simple supersonic spray system

Graphene, as metal hexagon things
By using a supersonic nozzle more commonly found at the business end of rocket and jet engines, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have devised a very simple and inexpensive way of producing high-quality, defect-free sheets of graphene on a range of substrates (materials). Other methods at producing large quantities of defect-free graphene have so far been very elusive — and, for the purposes that we’re interested in (replacing silicon in microelectronics), anything less than defect-free just won’t do.
