WHAT DOES SPACE BLANKET MEAN IN ENGLISH?

space blanket

Space blanket

A space blanket is an especially low-weight, low-bulk blanket made of heat-reflective thin plastic sheeting. Their design reduces the heat loss in a person's body which would otherwise occur due to thermal radiation, water evaporation, or convection. Their compact size before unfurling and light weight makes them ideal for use in spacecraft—where cargo space is at a premium. Civilian versions may be included in first aid kits and also in camping equipment. Lost campers and hikers have an additional possible benefit: the metallic surface appearance flashes in the sun, allowing use as an improvised locator-beacon for searchers.

Definition of space blanket in the English dictionary

The definition of space blanket in the dictionary is a plastic insulating body wrapping coated on one or both sides with aluminium foil which reflects back most of the body heat lost by radiation: carried by climbers, mountaineers, etc, for use in cases of exposure or exhaustion.
