I wish I had saved a photo of a man holding a block of the heat absorption tiles in a lab used on the Shuttle at a temperature of 2,500ºF without getting burned. Holding a glowing hot tile in his bare hands as you can see the outer edges as black, quite the heat displacement technology there.


I forgotten about that tech. I think I remember that picture, or one similar. Do you have hands on knowledge or just a fan?

I was hoping to find a list of all the products and/or tech we now use on Earth that came from the Shuttle missions/reseach and prepreations.

Wow, think about that Mach 25. Truly amazing. Lets hope NASA puts some serious pressure on Obama's mind and get the programs going again. After we fix the budget and can pay for such things. First things First.

I have very little first hands-on inside of NASA R&D invitation being as my forum name suggests, just a lowly illustrator. Though I have toured NASA research centers escorted by our NASA contacts, I wasn't in the position to be invited to launches like our program directors, never got to fly in the NASA low gravity KC-135 aircraft, Haven't stepped foot in mission control, and never really put my hands on any (mostly) of the micro gravity experiment modules onboard the Shuttle, every mission. My exposure was meeting the program directors, occasional scientists and engineers in their offices for descriptions of what I was to illustrate, develop mission related patches (they love that), early on in the traditional methods, and later as my name suggests, with computer aided tools and software. That's all, but spanning over 20 years since shortly after the Challenger disaster.

Even so, I have to have a pretty clear surface knowledge of what I image, not in a numbers crunching way, but in a broad brush stroke kind of way.
