Why is glass see through? What makes elastic stretchy? How come concrete pours? Why does a paperclip bend? Why does any material look and behave the way it does? Stuff Matters reveals all, while also introducing: Implants that become living bone (Bioglass: developed after Vietnam) The explosive that made the movie business (Celluloid: made from nitroglycerine!) The thinnest, strongest, stiffest material in existence (Graphene: only a single atom thick...) A diamond five times the size of Earth (It's orbiting a pulse star in the Milky Way) A solid that looks like a piece of sky (Aerogel: developed by NASA for collecting space dust) As well as concrete cloth, synthetic meat, 3D printing and many more
