In recent times, nanomaterials have been the leading runner in technological advances, and as it turns out, they may be able to resolve many of the worlds’ issues. Back when storing perishables in a cold cellar or nearby stream was still in use, hard-earned money was wasting away, as food was perishing before consumption. As nanorefrigerants were introduced to the refrigeration industry, people were able to remarkably alter their way of living. When dealing with the thermal management of the eleven-layer space suit, nano-textiles are out of this world! Nanoparticles drastically increase the surface area of a material, relating to an increase in thermal conductivity of the material, which in turn drastically reduces the size and weight of space suits. Whether these nanomaterials are being used in refrigerators or spacesuits, their discovery has drastically improved the lives of society and without cutting-edge tools such as the Hot Disk thermal conductivity instruments, innovations such as these would not be possible.
