Product description

This is a great collectors' item, gift, a unique and rare science display, or just something to amaze your friends. It’s simply amazing to hold in your hands!
Silica Aerogel was developed by NASA, and used to insulate the Mars Rover and collect comet dust in the Stardust Mission.
Some interesting facts about Silica Aerogel:

- World's lightest solid consisting of up to 99.8% air...the rest is Silica
- World's best insulator
- Can support over 1000X its weight...yes, that's a 2gm piece under the 2.5kg brick
- Melting point is over 2000°F/1090°C
- Nicknamed "Blue Smoke" due to its appearance...its hard to believe you are holding a solid

Dimensions: approx. 1 x 0.5 x 0.5 In.
The aerogel is shipped in a small acrylic box, and comes with a manual with information on handling

Same day shipping if ordered before noon EST! Second Day shipping available.
