Thinnest glass ever makes Guinness Book of World Records

In 2012, Cornell University and University of Ulm researchers simultaneously reported they had created the thinnest-ever sheet of glass. At just two atoms thick, the glass is far thinner than even a human cell. The researchers created it by layering silicon and oxygen atoms on top of graphene, which is a super strong material made of carbon. They are now being recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, which will publish the accomplishment in its 2014 book.
