This Huge Sphere Was Coated In Vantablack

Look hard at the picture above: can you see a 3D object or a 2D form? Youíll probably say the latter and even f*ght to prove it was badly layered on top of the manís hand in Photoshop. But you couldnít be farther from the truth since what youíre seeing is an actual Vantablack sphere #todaymagic

The optical illusion is a result of the coating used to paint the object: Vantablack. If you havenít heard about it, suffice it to say itís the darkest material ever produced in the lab. In 2014, British researchers made it public, explaining it could absorb 99.96 percent of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light. Two years later, they managed to darken it even more and now, the team that produced it, Surrey NanoSystems, says thereís no spectrometer advanced enough to measure the amount of light it absorbs.

Whatís even cooler is that the researchers released the coating in a spray formula (Vantablack S-VIS) that while itís not as black as the 2016 version, it still blocks 99.8% of light. Coat a figurine with it and you wonít be able to see the features anymore:

But how did they manage to create such a material?

By arranging millions of carbon nanotubes, each measuring around 20 nanometres by 14 to 50 microns. When light hits this nanotube forest, it goes straight through the gaps where it is trapped and absorbed. ďTo understand this effect, try to visualise walking through a forest in which the trees are around 3 km tall instead of the usual 10 to 20 metres. Itís easy to imagine just how little light, if any, would reach you.Ē, add the researchers.

Vantablack could be priceless in the hands of the military, expertly hiding features and things from the enemy. People who have looked at it describe an eerie feeling, as if they were staring at an infinite hole. If they touched it, the team says the surface would be easily damaged but that the ďsensation would be akin to touching the underlying substrate.Ē

they use this on the "boomerang" shape ufo's the gov made with alien tech

they put lights on the bottom of it for landing & guidance my guess




seen one way back that sh*t was dark as fu*k & looked black like that picture in op sh*t ..it was traveling during a blackout too, looks like they was patrolling the area due to the black out and testing it lol

you'll see pure blackness as it passed under the light of the stars and that's when you would notice it's shape & see lights on it looked like a group of stars moving

Not available[m for the public


The sad story of Vantablack is that, outside of industrial and military applications, it's not purchasable by the general public. An artist by the name Anish Kapoor secured exclusive artistic rights to the material from the manufacturer, Surrey Nanosystems, leading to a feud of amusing proportions.
Vantablack can't be touched without damaging the effect of the coating.

Maybe I played too much Metal Gear, but a company with the name ďNanoSystems in it sounds sketchy. I didnít even have to finish typing the name. It must be in the Apple database because it finished the title and capitalized the S in NanoSystems where they give you word they think you are spelling option. Spooky.
