PoptartinSD: I'm sure they measured it with a thermometer first, when they did.

Aerogels are amazing materials. The LI-900 shuttle tiles aren't exactly aerogels, but they very close. They are the best insulating materials on the planet, they are lightweight and strong but brittle.

One day we may be insulating our houses with this stuff.
