Scientists Create Color That Is Blacker Than Black
Dethklok singer Nathan Explosion's claim that "in order to make everything metal, it must be blacker than the blackest black times infinity" has become a reality.

As Metal Injection notes, a British tech company called Surrey Nanosystems has discovered a shade of black that is blacker than the blackest, so much so, that it erases any features on a surface.

As the Verge explains: "Made of carbon nanotubes, it can absorb 99.96 percent of light that hits it. Its developers say that to the human eye, the material - called Vantablack - completely erases any features on a surface, becoming simply a void ... That's because the dense coating of carbon nanotubes, rolled sheets of carbon atoms like the one seen above, are used to create a lattice that absorbs virtually all light as it's refracted around the tubes."

In the words of Spinal Tap, there is "none more black."
