NASA - Nanotechnology - Blacker than Black

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has a team of scientists testing micro and nanotechnology to use on spacecraft. The goal is to reduce the reflection off the surface of instruments satellites so that the data does not get polluted by the scattered light. The carbon nanotubes that the team grows have proven to be 10 times better than the NASA Z306 paint, currently used on spacecraft instruments.
