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.
