Asked by: Glenn Hawkins
Subject: stuff
Question: There has been some talk of a perfect gyroscope. Science has now made that possible with the material explained below; and with the use of Faraday's homopopular motor, in which only the rim would have weight and the rotational power would be created in the electrical and magnetic reactions iside the metal rim. (The rim is the motor.)

Advances in Ultralight, Ultra-stiff Materials
Automobiles and jetliners of the near future could be made of a material so light it's akin to frozen smoke. Too far out, you say? But that's just what scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and MIT have developed. Produced using additive micro-manufacturing processes and micro-architected metamaterials, they've created new ultralight, ultra-stiff 3D printed materials that have the same weight and density as aerogel, but with 10,000x the stiffness. These materials hold particular promise for making components for aircraft and automobiles where weight is a crucial factor.
