World record: Scientists from northern Germany produce the lightest material in the world

Description (Kiel University) A network of porous carbon tubes that is three-dimensionally interwoven at nano and micro level - this is the lightest material in the world. It weights only 0.2 milligrams per cubic centimeter, and is therefore 75 times lighter than Styrofoam, but it is very strong nevertheless. Scientists of Kiel University and Hamburg University of Technology have named their joint creation "aerographite."
