Metal foam: What occurs when a foaming agent, powdered titanium hydride, is added to molten aluminum, then let cool. The result is a very strong, relatively light substance (75–95% empty space). Because of its favorable strength-to-weight ratio it's been proposed as a construction material for space colonies. Some are so light that they float on water, which would make them excellent for building floating cities, like those analyzed by Marshall T. Savage in his book, The Millennial Project.
