4. Yeah

When I first wrote this I put adsorb. But since they used block in the article went ahead and used that. Only reason I could think they might of used it was they were trying to say it blocked the return of light. That to me isn't a good way of describing it. Wikipedia does have to me a better explanation of how it works and does use deflected inside the nanotubes then eventually adsorbing the light changing it to heat.
