Great title, I was excited to learn about the flaws in evolution unfortunately they did not site any... Ridiculous.

"Bill Nye vs. Creationism": It might sound like a bad 1980s comedy, but this is real life, with the bow-tied science TV star taking a whack on YouTube at Christian parents who might try to steer the...

that's because they are flaws by Authority. You wouldnt pester him with details if you had faith. Which you obviously dont,if you dont believe in fairytales.

Aerogel !!

Also know as frozen smoke, is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% air. If you hold a small piece in your hand, it’s practically impossible to either see or feel, but if you poke it, it’s like styrofoam. It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight and can withstand a direct blast from two pounds of dynamite. It’s also the best insulator in existence!

Aerogel was first created by Samuel Stephens Kistler in 1931, as a result of a bet with Charles Learned over who could replace the liquid in "jellies" with gas without causing shrinkage.

There are still some good things on Facebook. It's not all drama central. :-)

This picture is of a 2.5kg brick supported by a piece of aerogel, the worlds lightest solid material. This particular piece weighs in with a mass of 2 grams.
Aerogel is nicknamed 'frozen smoke' or 'solid air', due to the fact that it is composed of 99.98% air by volume. Aerogels are a diverse class of amazing materials with properties unlike anything else known. They exhibit the lowest thermal conductivity of any known solid, and are the lowest density structural materials ever developed.
In spite of their name, aerogels are solids and not gels. The name is derived from the production process, the liquid component of a gel is extracted through supercritical drying. The first aerogels were produced from silica gels, but later work produced aerogels based on alumina, chromia and tin dioxide.

Its unfortunate what we find pleasing to the touch and pleasing to the eyes> seldom the same.
