Van Truong, 19, the creative student who made this collection of notes said,

"I knew if I had to read through a packet of notes, I'd fall asleep," Truong said. "I don't know if I would've lasted through three hours just going through notes."

Truong said she chose to recreate "Starry Night" because of its composition. Unlike a portrait of a person, which she thought would look disjointed if made out of individual lines of biology notes, words and sentences could look like Van Gogh's brush strokes.

It transports electrons 10 times faster than silicon, and may soon be replacing it as the go-to material for transistors and computer parts. …

We're talking about "charging iPhones within five seconds" conductivity here. Imagine a world with electric cars that recharge as quickly as filling your tank with gas, or paper-thin foldable plastic phones that recharge the instant you set them down — that's exactly what graphene offers. And then there's the slight matter of its strength. Mix graphene with metals, and it increases their resilience 500-fold.
