A team of researchers from UC Irvine, HRL Laboratories and the California Institute of Technology have developed the world's lightest material -- with a density of 0.9 mg/cc -- about one hundred times lighter than Styrofoam™.
A network of porous carbon tubes that is three-dimensionally interwoven at nano and micro level -- this is the lightest material in the world. It weights only 0.2 milligrams per cubic centimetre, and is therefore 75 times lighter than Styrofoam, but it is very strong nevertheless. Scientists of Kiel University (KU) and Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) have named their joint creation "Aerographite."

So who is right? 0.2 mg/cc is lighter than 0.9 mg/cc, then it should be more than 75 times lighter than Styrofoam, if we based our calculations on what they said last year...

Meh!................sounds like they have finaly figured out how to manipulate the all in one suites that have been reported in many enetity encounters!
well thats atleast what my first thoughts are
