Space Ceramics
Ceramics are a field not only known to artists and hobbyists, but one that finds important applications in technical areas as well. Ceramic space materials need to withstand temperatures from -250 F in the cold of space to entry temperatures that reach up to 3,000 F, e.g.. during the current Mars Pathfinder mission.
