  • The advantages of utilizing the high specific impulse of liquid hydrogen as a fuel for advanced spacecraft can be realized only if a lightweight, high performance insulation is developed to limit the evaporation of the fuel which boils at -423 ° F. A multilayer insulation consisting of layers of radiation shields which are separated by lightweight spacers is necessary for intermediate and long term storage of liquid hydrogen in space. In order to achieve the desired thermal
