More Carbon Fiber in the Future?

The whiz kids down in Oak Ridge, TN, at a lab originally established to enrich and extract the uranium 235 used to incinerate/ irradiate Hiroshima, is working with a consortium of auto manufacturers on ways to make carbon fiber cheaper, and thus a more viable option for everyday vehicle construction. Currently, commercial-grade carbon fiber's running around 8 bucks a pound; the goal is to drop the price by three to five dollars and make it easier to work with on a large scale.
