I’d prefer it if people didn’t do impossible things.

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
Two types of people
Remember this gif? The one that’s been going around mislabeled as a full-body MRI?
Check this out.
The animation represents the entire data set (1,871 slices) of the male cadaver from the Visible Human Project. The animation was played fullscreen on a portable monitor, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver. Variations in the movement of the computer during each exposure created differences in the shape of the body throughout the series.
