Grabby hands! Gimme gimme gimme!
Take a 20 carat nugget of gold and try to make it float in your coffee. Impossible, right? Not anymore!
Swiss researchers have succeeded in created real gold that is so light it can float on the milk foam in your morning cup of cappuccino. As a matter of fact, it’s so light it can even balance on the tip of a feather or on the petals of a dainty flower.
It’s actually made up of a three-dimensional porous mesh of gold – or aerogel foam, and is a thousand times lighter than conventional gold alloys. In other words, it’s lighter than water and almost as light as air!
