Forget the Carbon, this is the lightest material world video

The California Institute of Technology, the University of California-Irvine and workshops HRL Laboratories have created this new material. Has lattice structure is made of hollow nanotubes nickel-phosphorus which is 1000 times thinner than human hair and in fact the lattice consists of 99.99% and 0.01% air material, making it 100 times lighter than Styrofoam, but the same strength as steel. This material could be used in a wide range of products from military use up everyday. The automakers could use it in order to make their cars really light, thus increasing efficiency and greatly reduces fuel consumption and emissions of CO2. The material absorbs much energy when it is compressed and can regain its shape after some pressure to accept. To pass this material in mass production will certainly take several years, but the key is that technology now exists.
