    Looks like the aerogel stuff is real. Whether it can offer benefits in a tennis racket that no other older commercially viable material can is another issue entirely.

    'Aerogel, one of the world’s lightest solids, can withstand a direct blast of 1kg of dynamite and protect against heat from a blowtorch at more than 1,300C.'

    interesting stuff.

    Yes i knew that aerogel existed but i don't think there will be much of that material in the racket. maybe one percent or less. I don't think one percent of aerogel makes a difference.
