  1. Some clever gents gently broke buckyballs "to form a disordered nano-clustered graphene-based hard phase with more than 90% elastic recovery after deformation", a novel amorphous material with extraordinarily high hardness and compressive strength: https://academic.oup.com/nsr/advance-article-pdf/doi/10.1093/nsr/nwab140/39584180/nwab140.pdf From what I can tell this creates layers of graphene-like platelets with enmeshed edges. Now that we know what it looks like, maybe it can be synthesized from graphene rather than buckyballs, for slightly more economical mass production.
  2. Just saw this, and my first thought was, "What would be the mass efficiency of a metal/ceramic composite incorporating q-carbon?": http://phys.org/news/2015-11-phase-carbon-diamond-room-temperature.html Second thought was, "Hey this doesn't look like it would be too hard to mass-produce".
