Materials tech is so very cool...
It's amazing the wonderful creation that God gave us an all that we can do with it.
I'd post the same thing if someone posted about greenish rocks that could be burned and produced copper. But FR isn't that old. ;)
If only they could mop up radiated water and the like.
Otherwise, great for us, we need as many as possible down to the Gulf of Mexico.

After the spill in the Gulf, some guy came up with the idea of floating hay barriers and using hay to mop up the oil.
THAT idea would have cost next to nothing.
Advanced tech marshmallows will cost money and will be seriously considered ?

(I say things that are true ... I have no proof ... but they're true)
There was a pair of good ol' Southern boys (maybe Cajuns) who demonstrated thai hay that was too old to be good feed
was exceptionally effective at absorbing oil floating atop water -- leaving the water almost perfectly clean. I saw the demo on TV, and I (a physical chemist) was impressed.
But the government FEMA/EPA flunkies for whom they did the demo, basically said "Don't call us, we'll call you..." And that was the last I heard of it.
Sadly, at that time there was a surplus of new hay, and growers were at a loss as to how to get rid of the old hay.
If you want something screwed up -- bring in the U.S. government!
