Afsaneh Rabiei, a mechanical and aerospace engineer and a professor at North Carolina State University, has successfully created a new metal material that is as light as aluminum but stronger than standard metal.  This new material is high composite metal foam made up of air pockets, similar to a sponge.  It will be able to provide stronger foundations for buildings, safer car bumpers, and better metal body parts and also improve body army and combat vehicles.
