  • Kevin Baldridge 17:25, 8 April 2013 (EDT):I remember reading about a self-healing carbon fiber-based material a few years ago. There were small pockets of the raw materials which would self assemble to heal a macro-scale break when the pockets were opened with the macro-scale break. I'll see if I can figure out what exactly it was
