Peel back the walls, head into space, and brave the ocean depths in this look at the ubiquitous material which never gets the respect it deserves.

  • From pink fuzz to high-tech polymers, explore the surprisingly sophisticated world of insulation.
  • For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.
  • The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.

Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.

It keeps us warm and cool; protects us and makes our world more comfortable. As simple as a pane of glass or as complex as the fuselage of a space station, it's all around us, but almost always out of sight.

MODERN MARVELS® explores where the past, present and future of insulation technology. Visit the manufacturing facilities of two of the most recognizable insulating materials--fiberglass and foam--and see how the ancient Romans and Greeks insulated their homes. By contrast, insulated concrete forms and gas-filled panels offer a peek into the future.

At home or in the office, on a space station or beneath the sea, insulation is essential for making our world habitable.
