Graphene is pretty cool stuff. It's the foundation of a lot of nanomaterials, and when it's only a single atom thick, it can stretch eternally in two dimensions. When it's more than one atom thick it behaves very differently, becoming graphite (which you often find in pencils). We already know a pretty easy way to get it pretty thin, but not reliably one-atom thin.
