A new ceramic material with the highest known melting point has been created by scientists from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) MISIS in Russia. 


Thanks to its combination of components, it could prove extremely useful for heat-loaded materials used in aircraft, such as nose fairings, jet engines, and sharp edges of wings that operate at temperatures above 2,000 degrees Celcius (3,632 degrees Fahrenheit). 


Their findings were published in Ceramics International.
