    Weight and performance needs of space programs have given impetus to the use of new thermal isolation techniques. Uses are currently ranging from the control of thermal environment in spacecraft with internal energy releases and limiting temperature changes in static storable fuels to insulating cryogens in bulk for lone-term employment in space. Aspects of such applications are discussed in this paper.
