Despite its incredibly low density, aerogel is one of the most powerful materials on the planet. It can support thousands of times its own weight, block out intense heat, cold and sound – yet it is 1,000 times less dense than glass, nearly as transparent and is composed of %99.8 air. The lowest-density silica-based aerogels are even lighter than air.
New (Dec 2011): “ Sustainable Lens: A visual guide ” published by NewSplash available through Amazon . How to convey the essence of sustainability in a few sketched lines? I’m wading through the net and my bookshelves to find examples of the genre.

The list is not meant to be exhaustive, but if I’ve missed your favourite diagram, leave a link and I’ll add it to the list.
