Science

Aerogel, also know as froze smoke, is the world' s lowest
density solid, clocking in at 9684', 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.

"It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight". I'm taking a wild guess here, and saying you are not an engineer.
You probably don't even science.

it also has an extremely low density so it still cant support much (density being mass/volume so you would require a large volume to have a small mass in this cass)

That would make the most comfortable bed ever!

User avatar #16 - soufflegirl (03/16/2013) [-]

because its probably very expensive and awkward to handle.

Now we know what to put inside our walls.

But it's very brittle and falls apart after some time. Our hackerspace thought about building a quadcopter with that **** .
