Bullet-proof clothing – A paper-thin material to stop bullets


Researchers have designed a new paperthin bullet-proof super material which can self-assemble into alternating glassy and rubbery layers.
The nanomaterial could translate into safety beyond vests. These advancements could accelerate progress on protective coatings for satellites and even jet engine turbine blades, researchers said.

A team of mechanical engineering and materials scientists from Rice University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created special materials that were able to stop bullets in the lab.
