Why aerogel powder can be used to make Mars exploration spacesuit
What exactly is aerogel powder?
The gel powder is sometimes called blue smoke or frozen smoke. The particles are extremely small, so the visible light scattering in the powder is tiny (Rayleigh scattering). It passes through air just as the sun does through the sky. If there's nothing in it, the blue-colored particles will look like the sky. It may also appear a bit red depending on how it views the light. Blue skies are blue and red evening skies. Because more than 80% is made up of air, the aerogel has excellent heat insulation properties. One-inch aerogel equals 20-30 pieces of regular glass. Aerogel placed between the flame and rose will not cause damage. Aerogel is also useful in space exploration.
Aerogel powder application
NASA Creates Mars Exploration Space Suits. In 2002 NASA founded a company that produces stronger and more resistant aerogels. NASA established in 2012 that spacesuits using new aerogels will be worn by astronauts for the 2018 Mars exploration. Mark Krajewski (a senior company scientist) stated that the 18mm thickness of the aerogel layer could be added to the spacesuit in order for astronauts to carry temperatures of up to 1300 degrees Celsius and minus 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Mark declared, "This thermostatic material is one of the best I've ever seen." Bulletproof does not fear explosion: Bulletproof, the second essential use of this new aerogel. NASA has been testing the aerogel-based constructions of military vehicles and homes. A laboratory test has shown that even when an explosive is exploded directly, the aerogel layer added to the metal sheet will still not damage it.

Gao Chao is a Professor at Zhejiang University's Department of Polymer Science. His research team has developed an ultralight aerogel gel. The material is light enough to break the current world record. It is also called an "all carbon aerogel" because its density (the density of air thrown away) is 0.16mg per cubic centimeter. This is less than a sixth of normal air density. Aerogel, according to Guinness World Record experts is the lightest substance. Because it is porous and contains air, the name aerogel was chosen. American scientists created the first aerogel using silicon dioxide in 1931. This was nicknamed "solidified smoking".
Aerogel powder prices
Aerogel powder purity and size will impact the price. The purchase volume may also have an effect on the cost. Large quantities of smaller amounts will result in a lower price. Our company website has the prices for aerogel powder.
