This is student from enggineering college...

hello sir, can i have the information about the thermal coating of spacecraft which helps in protecting it from very high temprature while entering into earth's ozone layer.

Space thermal environment[edit]

There appears to be nothing in this article, nor in a quick look, even in other Wikipedia articles, on the thermal radiation environment in space. This is both for high-temperature (e.g. solar radiation generally in the inner solar system, which gets particularly intense in Mercury and Venusian-vicinity heliocentric orbits but is quite high even in Earth orbit) as well as for low-temperature radiative effects to the cold of space. I'll keep my eyes open for some sources and see what I can do over time to rectify it. Cheers. N2e (talk) 00:59, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
