A new class of materials, carbon nanotube aerogels, is claiming title to the lightest material on Earth and, perhaps one day, among the most useful. For the last two decades, the focus has been on creating silica or polymer aerogels. But carbon nanotubes are opening up a whole new area of muscular applications, say scientists from the University of Pennsylvania. more
