Default Aerogel

This or something like it will change our lives.

Aerogel must be one of the strangest supermaterials to ever exist. Ghostly and shimmering in appearance, it's insanely light, incredibly strong, and an amazing thermal insulator. And its tricks look absolutely impossible when you see them up close.

Interesting! If manufacturable, it has some obvious applications

Default Re: Aerogel

I saw this on TV a few years back on the discovery channel. They were
showing New Inventions that they felt would change the course of
science / industry over the next decade or so. From what they were showing
on TV then, it was AMAZING STUFF ! ..... The name they used for it on that
show was Air Gel. They also had a segment on Laser Optics for TV / Computer
monitors that would change LED screens / cable and create a whole new
level of High Definition. Saying they could create Three dimensional images
on a screen from standard (original) Images. Basically saying they could take
an old movie like Gone With The Wind, and turn it into 3D through the
screen.
