Graphene aerogel unseats aerographite as lightest material ever in less than a year.
We’ve got the answer to all your Valentine's Day problems: the aerogel heart.
Back when I was a young whippersnapper, aerogel was a new and exciting wondermaterial. Since then, the aerated silica gel has been surpassed in some ways by other materials with even lower densities, but a new flexible incarnation of aerogel is destined to make the jump from labs at NASA to the socks on our feet.
Look at this strange stuff. It's called Aerogel, and it's a super insulator with the lowest density of any solid substance in the world. Affectionately known as "frozen smoke," it happens to be really good at sucking up a bunch...
