Early on the morning of April 22, 2005, over 100 Rice University students, grad students, faculty and staff gathered in the main Quadrangle at Rice University to begin assembling what would become the World's Largest Carbon Nanotube Model. The event was covered by print and broadcast newsmen and women (most notably Jonathan Walton from KHOU-TV).
