BNNTs are a upcoming and promising nano-tube for space exploration. Featuring a young's modulus similar to diamond  and offering extensive radiation protection , Could BNNTs be utilized in a Whipple Shield-like design for interplanetary spacecraft? Current designs of the Whipple Shield use Kevlar, but I believe that BNNTs could potentially be stronger than Kevlar .
This question is mostly for fact-checking the possibility of the replacement of Kevlar in standard Whipple Shields with Boron-Nitrate Nano-tubes for increased ballistic and radiation protection. I would prefer hard-science answers, but any response would be appreciated.
