Thanks to Alvin Riviera Lopez for sending me a link to this particular video on Youtube that talks about advanced materials that are the future of insulation.  Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientist Alex Gash enlightens us about aerogel or frozen smoke. Aerogel is dehydrated silica gel whose insulation properties are 39 times more than the best fiber glass of today because of the complex lattice structure. We might actually be looking at the home insulation material of tomorrow !
