world-lightest-metal1

Researchers from University of California Irvine have created the lightest metal on earth.
The material is constructed from a micro-lattice of nickel phosphorous tubes that are 99.9% air.
The tubes are hollow and have walls 1,000 times thinner than a human hair. Despite that it has the strength of metal with the added benefit of being ultra resistant to strain.
