The Lightest Structural Material Ever Made: 'Microlattice'
'Microlattice' is the lightest metal ever made. At 99.99% air, it's light enough to balance on top of a dandelion, while its structure makes it strong.
With a density as low as 0.9 kg/m3 (0.005 lb/ft3), 'metallic microlattice' is the lightest structural material ever made, while exhibiting high strength and an unexpectedly high ability to absorb energy and recover shape after compression.
Potential applications range from aircraft structural components to acoustic damping and shock absorption.
