Imagine a material with the same weight and density as aerogel - a material so light it's called 'frozen smoke' - but with 10,000 times more stiffness. This material could have a profound impact on the aerospace and the auto industries as well as other applications where lightweight, high-stiffness and highstrength materials are needed.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a material with these properties using additive micromanufacturing processes. The findings are published in the journal Science.
