Graphene is the material of future, and carbon nanotubes have a graphene structure that is very strong and lightweight, allowing a space elevator construction. Their production enables incorporation of nano grains of iron, but also of uranium. Thanks to graphene neutron reflective properties, it is possible to design a space-powered nanoreactor.
