Nothing compares to Aerogel, that's why it's Aerogel.

One might as well compare a 1977 Porsche 911 targa to the current 911 targa.

Were one to compare Porsches, which comes out on top?

Aerogel (as a category) can't compare to the Vector Equilibrium, because it is highly ordered while aerogel is amorphous.

NASA chose a cubic lattice because they are trapped in a Cartesian paradigm.

Dutch EV startup Lightyear on Tuesday revealed its first model, the Lightyear One, a sleek sedan with in-wheel motors and solar panels spanning the hood and roof. It also happens to look like a modern interpretation of the iconic Citroen DS.
