Two decades ago amateur scientist Maurice Ward invented a material that could resist the force of 75 Hiroshimas. So why haven't we all heard about it?

The gentleman feels for something in his jacket pocket. It's a nice suit, and it is accompanied by a suitably gentlemanly bow-tie. The effect is sartorially unusual but not too much. What will come out of the pocket, though, is more than unusual. It is unparalleled and almost unbelievable. 'Here,' says Maurice Ward, handing over a creamy small square. 'That's Starlite.' It's a piece of plastic that bends in all directions, with a charred mark the size of a coin on one side. 'That's from the nuclear blast,' says Ward. 'Don't worry, there's no nuclear stuff on it. I wouldn't have given it to you otherwise.'

Amazing stuff-it was featured on the BBC's "tommorrows world" prog I think.He made it from household items so the story goes.
Damn shame this has been lost to the world,due to the fact Mr Ward didn't get the offer of big money he was after.
So he kept it a secret,then died.There was talk of one of his relatives having the recipe,but she ain't sharing it either.

I think I read of a US man who invented a similar product-Was it Troy Hubertise(I can't remember).
I think it was him though,the guy who made a "bear proof"suit.
