Th stuff is flippin awsome!! is there any way to get this cheaply. it costs $25 for a couple shards of it. If you want more info go tohttp://www.unitednuclear.com

 

Interesting - this stuff is amazing,a block as big as a person would way only 1.2Kg but coudld support the weight of a car!

 

Amazing stuff, I think I'll use it for my next F.O.W :)

wonder if you could make ship hulls out of it. probably need a lot of ballast to keep it stable. also probably not good for passenger ships but what about barges or container ships.

Interesting idea... depends on thir softnesss though - if you ca stick your finger in it thAT would be no good.

 

I know they used it in a space missionto collect "space dust" :)
