By heating nanotubes to 2,000 degrees Celsius, scientists can manufacture carbon nanotubes that are significantly stronger than the original form

NanoTechWire is reporting about a recently published paper by three scientists who claim to have made an astonishing discovery for carbon nanotubes. Using their new manufacturing method, a typical carbon nanotube can be stretched from 24nm to 92nm.  The implication is that devices using nanotubes, particularly any sort of structural device, can withstand much stronger loads.  Space elevator, here we come.
