Flamethrower vs Aerogel

Silica aerogel is the second lightest solid — next to its close cousin, graphene aerogel. It's also an incredible flame retardant and insulant, keeping things from catching on fire or protecting from temperatures as low as liquid nitrogen. Veritasium puts silica aerogel to the test — with a flamethrower.
