2,200 Degrees Yet Cool Enough to Handle
A very cool
(pardon the temperature pun) demonstration of LI-900
in action. This is the stuff that the Space Shuttle
tiles are made from.
They are composed of 99.9% silica glass
and are 94% air
by volume. That means that they are incredibly
bad heat conductors, making those edges safe to handle with bare hands.
They can also be submerged immediately
into cold water and suffer no damage. Pretty neat, huh?
We thought so, and since we love all things #science
here at www.solarvps.com
- we figured it was definitely worth a share.
Hope you all are having an excellent #monday
