Introducing Aerographite, The World Lightest Material

This is a picture of what German Scientists say is the lightest material in the world. It is a network of porous carbon tubes that is interwoven at the nano and micro level to make the lightest material in the world. The substance weighs just 0.2 milligrams per cubic centimeter. It is 75 times lighter than Styrofoam (Thank God, because those Styrofoam cups are exhausting to lift). Scientists of Kiel University (KU) and Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) named their joint creation aerographite.
Researchers describe aerographite as “jet black, remains stable, is electrically conductive, ductile and non-transparent.”
The new material may allow revolutionary uses in electronics, aviation, and satellites to water purification.
