Best Answer

Delft tiles were produced from around 1580 until the present day. The term "Delft" is commonly used to describe Dutch earthenware tiles, which may be made not only in Delft but also in Middelburg, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, and in the north of the Netherlands in Makkum and Harlingen. The age of Dutch tiles can be approximately determined by their thickness. A tile from 1580 may be 2cm thick, this being reduced to 1.5cm by 1600 and subsequently to 1cm by around the mid to late 1600s. Modern tiles are very thin and lightweight by comparison. Most people think of Delft tiles as being blue and white, but they were also produced in coloured "polychrome" format.

Why is the exterior of the space shuttle covered with ceramic tiles?

CThey aren't just any ceramic tiles; they are made of a special synthetic material similiar to ceramic. Their purpose is to prevent the heat from reentering the earth's atmosphere from getting in the shuttle and basically melting the whole thing; kinda like insulation. The Columbia disaster in 2003 was cause by broken tiles.

Why is there only tiles on the bottom of the space shuttle?

There are tiles on the entire space shuttle. Every square inch is covered in tiles. The nose, bottom and leading edges of the space shuttle have black tiles while the rest of the space shuttle has white tiles. The nose leading edges and the bottom of the shuttle are the portions of the shuttle that get the most friction/heat from the atmosphere during re-entry.
