    Researchers at Purdue University have unveiled what is being called the whitest paint on record, which can reflect up to 98% of light. The paint uses the same chemical compound found in a type of photo paper that has been used by photographers for over a century.
    The paint was developed as a way to reduce power consumption for cooling large buildings in the summer as its 98% reflectivity is considerably higher than the 80-90% of light reflected by commonly available white paint on the market. It's even able to reflect infra-red heat, which makes it particularly suitable for this purpose...
