Also it can be made transparent so it looks like solid smoke.    
 It is incredibly heat resistant you can blowtorch it on your palm without getting burned.

No, you wouldn't. In order to be that light, it has to be mostly air (as the picture above states). So this material consists merely of a scaffold of silicone dioxide. It is a mesh of irregularly shaped, tiny rods, that tend to break after being exposed to to much pressure. So if someone were to put, let's say, a relatively hard, but on the surface uneven thing into it, like a penis, the structure of the material would break, millions of incredibly tiny spikes would break of and potentially get into your body, causing cancer.
Compare some of the newly found super-materials to asbestos. It's the same problem.

So even if you would somehow find that, I wouldn't recommend to use this as a really expensive fleshlight...

How much would a pound of aerogel weigh?

they have a new type of aerogel that's better for sound insulation, has more of a solid color, and is even more shock resistant than pervious versions of aerogel, witht he same weight/density.

I believe it is 97 percent air, not 99.

Why does it look burnt in that picture. This is what it normally looks like.

They should really make clothes out of this. You could walk around feeling naked without the awkward stares and arrest that comes with actually being nude in public.

I thought that was a flower with really strong petals and I'm kinda disappointed it's not.
