Is Zirconium or Niobium used for spaceships?
Both zirconium and niobium alloys are used in space crafts, especially in parts and places where heat resistance is a must. Together they become superconductive at low temperatures. Both elements have a wide range of uses and a history of being used in space and aviation industries.
