Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have found that graphene-based heat pipes can help solve the problems of cooling electronics and power systems used in avionics, data centres and other power electronics, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. The planet can be cooled the same way.
Heat pipes are one of the most efficient cooling tools because of their high efficiency and unique ability to transfer heat over a large distance.
