Abstract

Many of the liquid-hydrogen-fueled vehicles now envisioned require the ability to operate in space. For satisfactory long-term performance in this environment these vehicles must be insulated. The work presented here was directed at developing an external insulation, utilizing existing materials and processes, that would provide adequate performance on the ground and at the same time be effective in space.
