aerogel mistaken for comet

check out this Scientific American article . The image to the right of the article looks really cool, but to the best of my knowledge it has nothing to do with the article. It's a picture of a NASA invention, Aerogel, something my friend Eric introduced me to a long time ago. Funny to see that image turning up next to an article about comet dust, it actually looks like comet dust, but it isn't.

update: my bad, apparently Aerogel was actually used to obtain the comet's dust.. nonetheless, you should really check out Aerogel, it's cool stuff.
