What insulates our earth from deep cold of space?

Our atmosphere helps keep our planet insulated. It helps to trap heat on the surface instead of allowing it to be completely reflected back into space.

Why is the coldest part of the day occur 1 hour before dawn?

The coldest part of the day is NOT 1 hour before dawn. All other factors being equal, the coldest part of the day generally occurs about 30 minutes AFTER sunrise. It may seem logical to think that air temperature bottoms out just before sunrise and then begins to warm with dawn's early light. However: Between sunset and sunrise, the Earth's surface gathers no solar energy but continues to radiate away its stored heat. During the night, the surface also loses radiant heat faster than it steals heat from other sources, and thus its temperature, and that of the air in contact with it, drops steadily. At dawn, when the first light beams across the landscape, the incoming solar radiation is very weak. It does not yet have enough strength to counter all the heat escaping from the surface. As a result, the surface continues to lose heat for some time following sunrise, and the air temperature continues to fall. At some point, the solar rays shine strongly enough to counter the heat loss. The gain-loss balance is shifted, and the air finally begins to warm up. Now, remember that if clouds toll in or a front comes in during the night, this will have an effect. But as a rule of thumb: the coldest temperature is about 30 minutes after sunrise.

Why do have hair?

Hair deals mainly with heat. The brain is particularly sensitive to heat. Hair on the skin can trap air to keep heat in, or keep perspiration near the skin to take heat as it evaporates. The groin and armpits are heat sinks.

Is ceramics a good heat conductor?

Ceramics are good insulators. They keep heat well because they have a lot of air trapped in them.

Is wool a good insulator of heat?

yes it is because wool has air pockets which keep in all the heat and block out the conduction of heat, convection and radiation.

What is the difference between a heat conducter and a heat insulater?

A heat conductor is something which is could at transferring heat. Think of a metal spoon in a pan of boiling water. The spoon feels hot because the metal is good at transferring the heat to your hand. On the other hand, an insulator is something which is bad at transferring heat. They can be used either to keep heat in, or to keep it out. For instance, because air is a good insulator, hot water tanks often are covered in foam, which traps air, which helps to keep the heat in.
