2 Navy Airmen and an Object That ‘Accelerated Like Nothing I’ve Ever Seen’
This article is almost unbelievable 
because it seems to point to the ultimate metamaterial...
ie. that in which the intrinsic properties can be tailor made
to achieve results far beyond what has been so far attained.

These "nanowires" function counterintuitively due to the "quantum confinement" effects of such narrow dimensions.
A key feature, at least with the above article, is that the material involves self-assembly,
thus eliminating painstaking manufacturing methods.

Nature's miracles come from self-assembly.
