Aerogel, also know as frozen smoke, is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% air. If you hold a small piece in your hand, it’s practically impossible to either see or feel, but if you poke it, it’s like styrofoam. It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight and can withstand a direct blast from two pounds of dynamite. It’s also the best insulator in existence.

Chemistry at its finest

can i eat that

Why don’t we use this for everything?!?

This shit is about the coolest thing ever.

It’s such a great insulator that a thin layer of it will protect anything from the heat of a bunsen burner.

Even though it’s incredibly light and has an extremely low density, its lattice-like molecular structure makes it able to hold objects much greater in mass.

What if you got loads of it, and made a bed, you could pretend you were a pegasus

Possibly one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

Again, because science boner.
