Tiger’s thermos bottle technology was also used in space experiments.
Tiger was in charge of the development of vacuum double insulated containers storing precious space experiment samples in a HTV Small Re-entry Capsule (developed for installation in the space station refueling machine Kounotori 7) bringing supplies from the International Space Station (ISS) to the Earth.
On November 11, 2018, the HTV Small Re-entry Capsule returned to the Earth withstanding the strong impact during landing while keeping the experimental samples from the International Space Station at about 4℃.
