    I don't think people should have the right to exclusive use of a material. That's genuinely pathetic.

    Actually Black holes are invisible, because black holes suck up light so your retina can’t bounce back the light, therefore black holes are invisible!

    If you went out in a vanta black outfit you’d be sweating really quickly because it absorbs almost all light as heat.

    With one slight problem, vantablack absorbs too much heat. If you coated a swimming pool with it and filled the pool, the water would heat up so quickly and evaporate so violently it would cause massive explosions. Wearing a shirt made of vantavlck would kill you.

    I honestly think this might explain the stick figure men people have been seeing since 2012. I know there are claims that people have seen them prior to that, but all of the online reports that I have found come from 2012 or later. Two-dimensional humanoids? Vantablack, methinks.

    Fashion I couldn't care less. But the applications. Night BDUs for soldiers, you already said better microscopes/telescopes, if we could get it to collect solar, we could make a Dyson patch 😐 wouldn't be a ring or a sphere.. but it would get a lot of energy if it can target UV.
