You (Aero)Gellin’?

Aerogel. The holy grail of building materials. Samples are lusted after in materials classes everywhere. (available now on eBay, natch.) Insulator, structure, window, fabric, comet-catcher, aerogel can potentially revolutionize the building industry. It could revolutionize every industry….if only it wasn’t so damn expensive. Wired gives a brief history of the material that’s made of 99% air.

My only exposure to this product so far is when our designer wanted to use it, but then it got VE’d out. Doesn’t it tend to yellow after several years’ sun exposure?
