Aerogel is not your everyday foam. It is a special material with extreme microporosity composed of tiny bits measured in nanometers and linked together in a dendritic structure. Crazy. It's also:
  • 99.8% Air
  • 39 times better than fiberglass insulation
  • 1,000 times less dense than glass
  • Used on the Mars Pathfinder rover
It's like some kind of amazing techno-fog. I need some.
