IM SO IN LOVE
oh my gosh, I am friends with Posh Spice on facebook and this was in my NewsFeed a couple days ago. I’m so happy this was shared with the world.
I thought you meant like actual Posh Spice.
Aerogel, also know as frozen smoke, is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% 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.
Chemistry at its finest
can i eat that
Why don’t we use this for everything?!?
This shit is about the coolest thing ever.
It’s such a great insulator that a thin layer of it will protect anything from the heat of a bunsen burner.
Even though it’s incredibly light and has an extremely low density, its lattice-like molecular structure makes it able to hold objects much greater in mass.
What if you got loads of it, and made a bed, you could pretend you were a pegasus
Possibly one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.
Again, because science boner.
“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.
When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are.)”via Occupy Sweden
