Yes, it's the missing link for warp-wormhole drive in my opinion - Woodward's interesting objections not withstanding - time will tell. Indeed even at ISSO ten years ago I started thinking of a material apriori that had some of the properties that graphene has. I was motivated by Phil Corso's book "Day After Roswell" - the thin foil story. It's still too early to be sure about anything of course. If we can't do it with stuff based on graphene then we probably can't do it at all. However, the fact of alien ET saucers proves that we can. For the sake of argument I assume that "fact" in the war game scenario that hostile alien ET saucers that disable our nuclear deterrent are real. At the moment think of this as a kind of world-wide internet fantasy social network game, which may turn out to be true in the end. As it turns out, the ultra-capacitor property of ANYONIC graphene sheets sounds a little like Gordon Novel's high voltage capacitor "circuit"! Odd precognitive synchronicity perhaps? That is, if we can make zero frequency negative electrical permittivity with |n| >> 1 then we have an anti-gravity lifter no question of that in my opinion! I now have a rational picture of what Gordon Novel was trying to say - perhaps the Nazis did stumble on to graphene?
(index of refraction)^4GNewton/(vacuum speed of light)^4 = coupling of applied stress-energy density current to induced spacetime curvature
i.e. geometrodynamic "Ohm's Law" for metric engineers, space-time stiffness analog to electrical resistance in an ordinary circuit
the "refutation" based on "background independence" is a Red Herring in my opinion.
Only experiment can decide who is right here. It's a strictly empirical issue in the sense of Popper falsifiability.

The remarkable properties of graphene – a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon that was first isolated
in 2004 – have produced a wave of discoveries in fundamental physics. But its new chemical cousin,
graphane, may prove more amazing still, as Kostya Novoselov explains
is a condensed matter physicist at
the University of Manchester, UK,
"Generally defect-free and highly ordered, crystals of graphene are the thinnest objects possible and, simultaneously, 100 times stronger than structural steel – making them the strongest material in nature. ... Graphene is also optically
transparent and chemically inert, as well as being highly conductive. Such an unusual combination of extreme properties makes this 2D crystal attractive for a wide variety of applications. ... By binding the conductive electrons to another
chemical species, we can produce a graphene-like carbon compound that acts as an insulator. ... This simple change may open up a whole new world of graphene-based chemistry, leading to novel 2D crystals with predefined properties, and an ability to tune the electronic, optical, mechanical and other properties of a material according to one’s needs.
