How thin is graphene?

One of graphene's most dynamic properties is its remarkable thinness. At just one atom thick, graphene is one million times thinner than the diameter of a human hair. It thinness allows it to be extremely flexible and conduct heat and electricity fantastically well.
​Graphene's thinness lends itself perfectly for the development of future technology. Its high conductivity makes it perfect for aiding in CPU cooling and creating more efficient technology.
