Great video. Very informative.
I should point out there is a historical parallel to this issue. Two hundred years ago, cotton was very expensive to process also, due to the need for human labor (slaves) to manually separate the cotton from the cotton seeds embedded in the raw cotton fibers. When the cotton gin was invented, machines could then separate the seeds from the raw cotton. This greatly multiplied the efficiency and throughput of cotton manufacturing, greatly reducing the time and expense of manufacturing.
While carbon fiber obviously doesnt have seeds, new technological discoveries have been shown to improve the product while reducing its wholesale cost.
