Some stories jump out at me because they both challenge credulity and my imagination Starlite. Small time inventor Maurice Ward created a heat defying, lightweight material he calls Starlite over two decades ago. It can survive with barely a scratch everything up to and including a nuclear heat flash with incredible insulation properties. Through a vague series of events everyone in the world wants it, including NASA, but nothing happens. No deal is ever struck and Starlite never gets developed because of factors both believable and ludicrous. Mr. Ward’s story is worth reading.

If Starlite indeed is a real substance, the uses for it are endless, including extruding it around nuclear reactors when they leak as in the catastrophe in Japan. Space craft, buildings, on and on and on… the potential of such a creation could change everyday life as we know it. A material that resists temperatures capable of melting carbon yet remains cool to the touch is I admit unfathomable. Ward claims he is ready to make more expansive deals now to get Starlite into production. I hope it’s real.

I hope this stuff is real. I'm pretty skeptical, I guess. I can it used for a lot of space things, including Moon bases.

I'm pretty skeptical too, Charles, but what a story! If all the stuff Ward claims in the article is true, Starlite would be the single greatest invention in a very long time. I'll be watching the progress on this. That's for sure.

Hell, our government gives Pakistan billions of dollars, and they still screw us behind our backs. If Starlite was real, you'd think they would have paid Ward any figure he could imagine to get it. Good story though. :)

I think he should just 'fess up and tell the truth.
I think he got the stuff from the Roswell crash site. I mean, what was left after some of it was used to make the bags for Fritos and stuff. ;)

Fascinating story, hope the product proves to be true. I certainly believe the bureaucracy/government run-around part of it!

I agree, Raine. The foul-up negotiations behind the scenes has a very real flavor to it. I like the Roswell angle. :)
