the very very very very very very very very very very very best is flesh

The best insulator on the planet (known so far) is Aerogel.

Also called solid smoke, it is the lightest solid on Earth. It has a fairly high compressive strength, but it is also very brittle. It is about $40 for a solid piece the size of a quarter (random fragments can be cheaper), so it's really only for small experiments (unless you're operating on NASA's

budget). Although, there is some development with Aerogel

particles being used in blankets for more practical applications.

I don't know what I'm

talking about.

aluminum foil works quite nicely when it comes to storing heat. the reason for this isbecuase

it reflects heat and light energy through means of radiation.

The best insulator is newspaper because it insulated the lemonade in my experiment the best out of newspaper,water,or

pink hose insulation .
