This kind of material is a perfect example of our ability to adapt in the name of science. Many people would view the problem of burning up due to high speeds while re-entering the atmosphere as an unsolvable problem. It would seem as if some things just aren’t meant to be or can’t be achieved.
But no, we invented mind-blowing material that absorbs and re-disperses the heat so it can stay structurally intact. This is the kind of thing that a lot of people would categorize as an alien technology if they didn’t know any better.
