If superheroes were real, their uniforms would be made of Nextel. Stronger than aluminum, fireproof and able to withstand meteoroids, Nextel is the wonder ceramic fabric that protects NASA's Space Shuttles and keeps satellites from getting smashed to pieces.
NASA initially used Nextel in Space Shuttle When engineers needed materials for Shuttle tiles that could stand up to the heat of reentry.
After 40 years of launching objects into space, there's a lot of debris floating around in orbit. In fact, there are approximately 100,000 fragments one centimeter or larger circling our planet that could pose a serious problem to spacecraft. Knowing this, NASA engineers set out to design shielding to protect space vehicles from the marauding objects.
While searching for an answer, engineers with NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama and Johnson Space Center in Texas discovered Nextel's impact protection ability. It turns out that combining the fiber with Kevlar, a material used in bulletproof vests, produces a fabric that is more impact resistant than even aluminum plating. Woven into a sheet known as a "Stuffed Whipple Shield," the technology is lightweight yet strong enough to fend off meteoroids and other space debris. Currently, the shield is being used aboard the International Space Station and orbiting spacecraft.
Now, We Have Carbon Spools........but NO ( NONE ) of any Item for Ceramics to be used in processes for Tinkers or Manufacturing Plants that could give our ships or stations not only the products but the Protections of Ceramic armors And related Materials like those used in the Whipple Shielding.
Now, In the Tinkers they want to use Carbon Spool to generate a Ceramic Armor........Insanity!!!!!!!!
You can't make something out of nothing, you'll need Ceramics!!
Ceramic Raw Materials
Far from understanding these materials as familiar rocks, feldspars, and clays, each with unique personalities of their own, we know them only as white, gray, or brown powders neatly packaged in uniform bags
So, what we Really need to do is, NOT only add a Ceramic Powder Item to the game for manufacturing purposes,
WE also have to RETURN the Carbon Fiber Shell Armor
( to make the Tinker Recipe using Carbon Spool to make proper sense , however I am sure it should also include Titanium.)
And THEN add a Recipe where the tinker can employ Ceramics to make Ceramic Armors.
