What is graphene?

A material full of imagined potential

It was in 2011 during a material class when I first heard of Graphene. A material claimed to be superthin, super flexible, but super also superstrong. But, what is exactly Graphene?
After googleling for some days, I found out that the media was giving more or less the same information. Quite confusing though. Tried some scientific c papers aswell, but immediately gave up. Then I thought to myself, why don’t I directly ask about Graphene to experts in the field?
The book resumes 30 days of research, including interviews, a visit to Leiden and reading and documentary material.
