Researchers Create Ultra-lightweight Ceramic Material That Can Better Withstand Extreme Temperatures

UCLA researchers and collaborators at eight other research institutions have created an extremely light, very durable ceramic aerogel. The material could be used for applications like insulating spacecraft because it can withstand the intense heat and severe temperature changes that space missions endure.
