While trying to create graphene, scientists accidentally developed the glass which is only two atoms thick. Researchers were actually able to see individual silicon and oxygen atoms under an electron microscope. This has helped answer questions about the structure of glass, which has stumped scientists for over 80 years.
The folks at the Guinness Book of World Records took note of this ultra-thin glass, and the scientists involved will be featured in the 2014 book.
