Darkest Material On Earth Also Repels Water Molecules

A material discovered in 2014 called Vantablack has been deemed the blackest material ever found on Earth. Since it’s creation, scientist have tested the unique material with natural elements to view it’s affects. In the video you will see Vantablack act as a hydrophobic (water repellant) substance when placed in a water (which helps keep it afloat). Usually the aluminum disk (shown in the video) would have sunk to the bottom, however, not when coated with Vantablack and the carbon nanotubes that make up it’s physical properties. Check out the video and let us know what you think!
