Question "Specialized Materials" Project for Chemistry class.

Hey Guys,

I've gotta do a chemistry project on a specialized material that we can chose, and I was thinking something along the lines of that carbon fibre stuff that they build airplanes out of now.

What is the actual name for that stuff, and are there any other awesome new materials used for airplane making these days that might be interesting to do a project on as well? Like that GLARE stuff that I heard Airbus uses or something?

Hey,
the material you're talking about is called "carbon fiber-reinforced polymer". They are not yet using it on many aircraft, but if I'm not mistaken, parts of the A380 are made from CFRP. Further, the material is used for some prototype automobiles.
