Space Aged

I was reading an article on so called "green" office buildings when I noticed the author kept using the phrase "built with Space Aged materials."

What, exactly, does that crap mean? Is Space Aged a company that makes modern building materials? Are these materials from some future age where we live in space and these things are teleported back through time for us? Does it mean the materials were aged for years in space to improve them? Tell me, what the f**k does this mean?

I mean, we're obviously using them here and now. Wouldn't they really just be modern building materials? Are you some geriatric author whose intellect is still blown away by the concept of the computer? Are you, in fact, thinking you are typing away on a "space aged" input device?

The mind boggles.
