Material Marvels with Ainissa Ramirez

Yale University has a new video series on its YouTube channel by Dr. Ainissa Ramirez explaining some of the materials used in modern engineering. Her first video, below, is on ceramics used in space shuttles and how they allow space shuttles to survive the incredible heat of atmospheric reentry. The videos are very short and accessible, although I’d like if they had a bit more details.

Her videos don’t have their own channel, unfortunately, but you can easily find them by searching for Material Marvels; there are four so far. I found these videos via the USA Science & Engineering Festival blog at Science Blogs.
