Aerogel is basically a synthetic porous ultralight material made from a gel, in which the liquid component has been replaced with a gas. Despite its name, aerogels are solid, rigid, and dry materials that do not resemble a gel in their physical properties.

Bizarre Natural Phenomena

Here are a few bizarre natural phenomena that you rarely (or ever) see, and they include "Snow Donuts", also known as "Snow Rollers". This rare meteorological phenomenon happens when large snowballs are formed naturally as chunks of snow are blown along the ground by wind, picking up material along the way, in much the same way that the large snowballs used in snowmen are made. Or, a brinicle, which forms beneath sea ice when a flow of extremely cold, saline water is introduced to an area of ocean water, being the undersea equivalent of a hollow stalactite or icicle.

Can Opener Life Hack

While many companies are moving away from using blister packaging, there are still times you may need to crack things open. When scissors don't work out, just grab a can opener and open away. On a related note, did you know that while food preservation using tin cans had been practiced since at least 1772 in the Netherlands, the first can openers were not patented until 1855 in England and 1858 in the United States? These vintage openers were basically variations of a knife. Continue reading for more.
