Watch me make aerogel:
Main channel:
Silica aerogel is one of the world's lightest solids. It's made from a very fine network of silica and over 99% of it is actually air. All of this air makes it a really good insulator. The texture of it is kind of like Styrofoam, but it's actually really fragile, and it's really easy to accidentally break it.

  • Jolly good, Mr. Red Shorts👍! What else can one do with what's it called again, airgel or whatever besides break it up into tiny little pieces with your finger? Is it expensive? Is it more air or silicone?
