Foam
A foam is a substance that is formed by trapping pockets of gas in a liquid or solid. A bath sponge and the head on a glass of beer are examples of foams. In most foams, the volume of gas is large, wi...

Boeing: Lightest. Metal. Ever.
Microlattice is the lightest metallic structure ever made. At 99.99% air, it's light enough to balance on top of a dandelion, while its structure makes it st...
Mealworms recycle Styrofoam in 24 hours, according to study
New research reveals that mealworms can subsist on a diet of Styrofoam, which could have big implications for the recycling industry.
Sprayable Foam That Slows Bleeding Could Save Lives
Traumatic injuries, whether from serious car accidents, street violence or military combat, can lead to significant blood loss and death. But using a material derived from crustacean shells, scientist...
A Metal Composite That Will (Literally) Float Your Boat
Researchers have demonstrated a new metal matrix composite that is so light that it can float on water. A boat made of such composites will not sink despite damage to its structure. This first lightwe...
Confirming Einstein, scientists find 'spacetime foam' not slowing down photons from faraway gamma-ray burst
One hundred years after Albert Einstein formulated the general theory of relativity, an international team has proposed another experimental proof. In a paper published today in Nature Physics, resear...

New diamond aerogel is so light that it's like "frozen smoke" made of diamonds
Researchers have figured out a way to make diamond aerogel. The aerogel is only 40 times as dense as air. Someday, it may coat the windows, the TV, and the inside of a person's body.
Graphene aerogel is seven times lighter than air, can balance on a blade of grass
Chinese material scientists have created the world's lightest material: A graphene aerogel that is seven times lighter than air, and 12% lighter than the previous record holder (aerographite). A cubic...
