New Ceramic May Help Hypersonic Planes Take Off

Ceramics have strong bonds between their atoms—unlike metals, in which the electrons in those bonds have more freedom to move around. This gives ceramics high melting points, permitting them to be deployed in hot circumstances. New hypersonic ceramic could prove beneficial. FRICTION burns. And the friction of the air on something travelling at five times the [...]
