Smart Home show talking about the aerogel... although I have heard about it since I was in high school, they showed some kewl demos...

1/4" window has same insulation as 7 panes of glass

Nanogel is used as filler in opaque skylights

They showed a 1/4" aerogel insulation and was unable to burn it with a stove... in fact... he kept his hand on it IN the burner without getting burnt...
