I want my wasted minutes back. Jeez, that was a painful example of modern "journalism".
Coquina stone is kinda foam like, the fort at St. Augustine is made of it, it just soaks up cannon balls.
Sorry, I thought the stuff sounded interesting, even if the journalists didn't.
It is an interesting concept. Would be fun to get some to test
Sorry, I wasn't poo poing the concept, just the reporting.
I can't see that it would benefit personal armor. I could see it in vehicle and building armor though.
About 12 years ago I saw some metallic foam.
It was being developed as armor for space craft. Very small particles at very high speeds cause damage. Space isnt empty and there is more and more "junk" in orbit.
But any armor for space has to be light as estimates I have seen is about $70000 per kg to put payload into space.
