Video: Ever see the super strong, super light super material known as carbon fibre get squished like this? Once the hydraulic press hits it, the threads start coming undone, and it slowly disintegrates as the pressure becomes stronger and stronger. What's pretty neat, though, is how the carbon fibre rod still stands up steady throughout and never snaps. It just unravels very, very slowly. This only happens to the carbon fibre if it has a smaller footprint than the hydraulic press though. If the carbon fibre block is wider than the press, the press can't really do anything to it. (It maybe, like, dents it a little). So it's still a super strong, super light super material in my book.
