The novel uses of porous silicon include powering sattelites and perhaps even space ships!
In the early 2000s scientists discoverd that hydrogenated porous silicon reacts explosively with oxygen at very low (cryogenic) temperatures. A porous silicon wafer in say outer space would release several times as much energy as an equivalent amount of dynamite, and at a much greater speed. The properties of the porous silicon and how it handles oxygen very well. This allows for a fats and even detonation.
Currently porous silicon is being researched as a potential thrusting mechanism for satellites.
