Aerogel:
Strong as Steel
Lighter than Air
Despite its incredibly low density, aerogel is
one of the most powerful materials on the
planet. It can support thousands of times its
own weight, block out intense heat, cold and
sound - yet it is 1, 000 times less dense than
glass, nearly as transparent and is composed
of %99. 8 air. The
aerogels are even lighter than
air.
LIKE A BOSS
Despite its fragility in certain regards and its
incredible lack of density, aerogel has amazing
thermal, acoustical and electrical insulation
properties as illustrated by the images here. A
single block can also support half a
ton of weight. NASA continues to find new
applications for this incredible
material.
An aerogel window one inch thick has the
effective insulating capacity of a thick
glass window system. While it is still expensive
and has other limitations, this material - originally
developed nearly a century ago but still undergoing
experimentation - could prove to be one of the
most influential materials of the 21st Century

eror,
Aside from its other capabilities, aerogel also has
amazing absorbing abilities( ).
Some speculate it could be the future solution to
oil spills. It is also being tested as a possible
drug deliver system for potential
human patients.
Aerogel armor would look so badass.
