+ - Lightest Material Ever Made - with super absorbance ability->

Submitted by Taco Cowboy
Taco Cowboy (5327) writes "It has a weight of just 0.16 miligrams per cubic centimeter, one sixth that of air

It is reportedly able to absorb more than 250 times its own weight of oil (some reports say that up to 900 times)

The main ingredient is Graphene

Due to its super-absorbance characteristics, — absorbing up 68.8 grams of oil per second with 1 gram of carbon aerogel, — this "Carbon Aerogel", as it is known, may be deployed to cleaning up oil spills
