Vantablack is the world's blackest black material

New York

VANTABLACK is the world's blackest black. It's so black that 3-D objects coated in the material are visually reduced to mere silhouettes. A crumpled piece of tinfoil, for example, looks like a vast abyss. That's because the material absorbs more than 99.965 per cent of light.
