    Space Race Materials


    I need a list of materials (alloys, ceramics, plastics) that were developed and inverted during the space race.

    I'm especially interested in fabrics.

    Thank you in advance

    Kelly, does this answer violate the no homework policy? Hope not.
    Space blankets, space suits, the Mylar film that protected the lunar Lander...
    Teflon (I think), the insulting bricks on the space shuttle, heat shields on Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo capsules, memory foam, ...
    If this is homework I strongly suggest you do your own research and do not site an online forum as your official source.

    Oops! I don't think the bricks were insulting. I think they were insulating.

    The op's question is not clearly homework to me... So, no.
