This is a really great result. Until now most of graphene research was focused on its electronic properties. Balandin made an important discovery and substantially expanded the scope of graphene studies. It is very likely that thermal management will be the first real-life practical application of graphene.

This is the best science story I read over the last few years. The computer overheating is a real problem that everybody can feel. New materials that conduct heat well may certainlly help.
