Lightweight material

If you follow the latest developments in the world of modern technology, this material will not be big news for you. However, to consider in more detail the easiest material in the world and learn a little more useful details.

The creators of the airgel are graphene, researchers at Zhejiang University of China. His incredibly impressive low density as features and visually. 16 milligrams per cubic centimeter, make it easy to place a flower on the surface of an impressive piece of this unique material. Graphene airgel characteristic absorption just like sponges at an incredible rate. It is possible that in the future it will be used for the collection of oil slicks. Despite its apparent fragility, the material recovers quickly enough shape under mechanical stress.
