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.
Nile talks about lab safety:​

  • Yeah I’d like to put it all up in my attic keep the heat down in the winter and warm in the summer or wait, the other way around or something like that It’s just getting the stuff in the first place. Although it’s not the best idea to bring substances around an attic that’s got all 12 steps under the hatch
