Friday Harlowe : And now : *Thermal tile vs. glowing knife inside an hydraulic press with a waterjet cutter in slow-mo* ? _edit_ : will it blend ? 😂

sarcasmo57 : What would happen if you put one in water?

Lethal Harmony : For some reason I was waiting for the part where someone burned their hand. xD

León Manuel : Just out of a 2200 degree furnace and you can touch it after a few seconds?! They should make toasters out of that stuff.

SolarEXtract : Glowstone

Remy Note : 2200 degrees... It doesn't matter if it's c or f.

StoicListener : Video was cut short when I was about to learn something!

zay k : I wish it didn't cut off like that. is the rest of the video on the web?

PINGPONGROCKSBRAH : Those things look like real life glowstone from Minecraft

ThisIsNot AnAlias : I'm surprised they weren't made out of some high density metal -like that mans balls

joe rock in : 1:23 hand shaking..

hameed : what is peter dinklage doing at nasa?

teiman : they invented the material the buckles of lava in minecraft are made of

FutureNow : I really want to see one of these in person.

Marcells22 : SO the One Ring is made of space shuttle insulation tile?

Scott Strong : RIP: Space Shuttle

Luis Campos : Develope a fire shelter with this technology.

Chris Danes : Where am I going wrong here. The guy says twice that he can pick it up because it dissipates heat so quickly. Surely he can pick it up because it dissipates heat so badly. A block of metal dissipates heat well. Thats why you cant pick it up - it dissipates straight into your fingers. It clearly doesnt dissapate heat well, because its still white hot after a few minutes.

DJ Tanner : Science +1 Religion 0

Tyler Bowers : Oh look, NASAs version of a Hot to the touch, 2200° on the inside!

kingcw : The doubters aka "They never landed on the moon" brigade will put this down to trickery no doubt. I've seen this stuff used on a modern potter's kiln, it works Ok.

ELLE3773 : "...during my KSC tour..." Anyone please tell me i'm not the only one who thought about Kerbal Space Center...

Fal : Hand gets burned at 1:32

RONALD DIBERTO : This appears to be the Starlite material claimed to be able to withstand and insulate from extreme heat. It was invented by amateur chemist and hairdresser Maurice Ward (1933–2011) His computer was hacked, all the data was stolen and the only two pieces known to exist were stolen. And now NASA who were originally in negotiations for it, has it. Proof of corruption.

Just a Youtuber : 1:02 - that 'TSSSSS' noise scared the shit outta me

bellum128 : I have a strange urge to put that in my mouth...

cyrdust : Holy Moly! Where did you get that technology?! Stop torture aliens!

Adrian del Castillo : SCIENCE!

abyss_dweller_9001 : And that is why you have a "pay gap", women just won't take risks even though it's not really a risk at all, men trust the science/physics while women only trust their gut feeling: You can really tell women and men reporters apart here just by watching how they handle those cubes: You can see the women reporters trying to touch them and they don't really trust the science/physics despite having just seen a person holding the cubes up. Then you can see the men: they have seen and trust the person showing them these cubes are safe to touch at the corners and they take them and even take pictures of it with their free hand.

AwsmToaster : If a block of metal dissipates heat badly, that would mean the block would stay hot for a long time. Dissipates: To drive away, dispers, fade, vanish, use up... yeah, something along those linse.

stap legun : Damnit 1:26, he JUST said to NOT HOLD IT BY THE EDGES.

Cygnus A : Lies, we don't believe you NASA

sandollor : It's nice to see Tyrion staying active and giving classes on space shuttle tiles.

Bartosz Olszewski : So it's glowstone

Livereater00 : ...but a $10 o-ring can bring a shuttle down

Mike : Someone needs to turn this into a CPU heatsink for PC's. Would be perfect. Now if we could just drive the cost of manufacturing and materials down %12,000 or so I think we would be in business.

Ford M. : Интересно, а что если его в кого ни будь кинуть, насквозь пройдет и дырку оставит в форме куба?

fennicute : Science!!! <3

rustycan420 : By the way, one single tile of that stuff (LI-900) cost 1000$ per tile.

Virtual Willis : Science!

Brian Murray : Can I have a engine block and cylinder heads made from this? Imagine no coolant or problems with over heating. A new material for air cooled engines.

Spaceguy5 : I own two complete HRSI tiles and one complete LRSI tile. They are indeed very light like styrofoam. They have a thin glass coating on the outside, but that does not add much weight.

SoG Watchman : Kept waiting for someone to scream... Wow that's crazy.

Nathanael S : I know it doesn't change the science or anything but is this Fahrenheit or Celsius? Since he mentions molten metal I'm assuming Celsius but on the off chance it's in freedoms I will be a lot less impressed considering it would be half the temperature.

Quantum Uncertainty Workshop : my uncle developed those while working at Corning Glass Works... they denied him the right to the patent for it and kept it themselves.

sickleandsuckle : Wonder if these could be used in futuristic passive GPU cooling.

Nekros : If it's so great at dissipating heat, why is it still glowing?

Johnny Favorite : An Energon Cube!

Shin Drad : what are they made of?

MrKingkold187 : Amazing how fake this crap is and everyone that watches it believes it. It's not a space shuttle it's an airplane. Watch a re entry video and you will see how fake that is too
