NASA is claiming it is the most light absorbent material ever developed, and capable of absorbing 99% of ultraviolet, infrared, far-infrared, and visible light. That may not sound too impressive on its own until you find out what it can be used for and the benefits it brings.

Hurricane Isaac at Night by NASA: Captured by Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite on the Suomi-NPP satellite at 1:57AM on 8/28/12. (The VIIRS "day-night band," detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near-infrared and uses light intensification to enable the detection of dim signals. In this case, the clouds of Isaac were lit by moonlight.) #Hurricane_Isaac #NASA #Visible_Infrared_Imaging

Acoustic Levitation is a method of suspending materials by using acoustic radiation pressure from intense sound waves. Two speakers are lined up in such a way that their sound waves (roughly 22 kilohertz) set up a standing wave strong enough to levitate light objects such as droplets when placed at the nodes where they may stay suspended for long periods of time! via webodysseum and wikipedia #Acoustic_Levitation #Material_Sciences #webodysseum
