British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.
The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.
Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.
It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.

I realise this is shittiest thing to post on your Independence Day but now you can see why I would fail in an American school
This has seven hundred notes and it’s basically out of my control now but omg this is the Canadian grading scale
THIS is the American grading scale. As you can see, it is completely and utterly designed to make students feel like they are failures. If you think you’d do terribly in Canada, just try and deal with the grades in America. Personally, I’d be thrilled with the Canadian grading system.
A 70 IS A B IN CANADA
ARE YOU KIDDING ME
I CRIED OVER 70s
GOT MY ASS HANDED TO ME OVER 70s
HAD MY FATHER’S HATE AND ANGER UNLEASHED UPON ME OVER 70s
THAT’S NOT EVEN ALL AMERICAN SCHOOLS.
IN MY SCHOOL:
F: 69 and below
