Do you think we could start seeing kilns with aerogel insulation in the future?

Don't think I read it too well. It does say Aerogels are poor radiative insulators because infrared radiation (which transfers heat) passes right through silica aerogel. Maybe a bad idea. I don't really know. Maybe a layer behind some ifb.

I kind of doubt if it would hold up for many heat/cool cycles.

It would be neat to have a see through kiln.
