Powdered Water just add....

 

Known as Dry water, it was originally discovered in 1968 then forgotten about, in 2006 it was rediscovered and a group of UK scientists decided to find a use for it. "Hopefully, we may see ´dry water´ making waves in the future."

It has powerful ability to soak up gases
making it an ideal candidate for research into ways to adsorb out of the atmosphere and store greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. In time the technology may be applied to other liquids such as oil.

´Dry Water´ is actually tiny droplets of of water coated in modified silica (sand). Water molecules makes up 95 per cent of the powdered water and the silica stops the droplets from combining and creating regular liquid water.

  Wonder what  
 
other uses it has?

  this is 1 of those things  
 
that is extremely boring, until you have it as a class project, or homework assignment. After that if no one understands it they´re flawed somehow.

I think that´s called freeze dried water.

Nice try but I would have to say that snow is not "freeze-dried" water.

its a blonde or Irish joke.
e.g.
whats the latest Irish invention? powdered water just put it in a glass and add water.

otherwise silica is what is added to the water to keep it ´powdered´, I don´t think the water is reconstitution-able

  Hmmm  
 
This could be very useful for hiking and stuff, i swear most of the weight of a hiking bag is mainly water

"Known as Dry water, it was originally discovered in 1968 then forgotten about, in 2006 it was rediscovered"

I wonder if they get half the credit for rediscovering something that was previously discovered but forgotten about?
