Roll up, roll up....For one whole British pound (£1) you can chance your luck with one of our specially-loaded vending machines. Dispensing material curiosities, wonders and delights, this is not only a bargain but a lottery as well, for one lucky person will be dispensed a fragment of Aerogel made by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. At 99.8% air, this is the lightest solid in the world and is blue for the same reason that the sky is blue.
