I was in the high sierras at twin lakes years ago. Freezing cold even with my cold gear on. Took my clothes off to undies. Rapped torso arms and legs in trash bags and taped it on. Put clothes back on.. mmmm warm. Space blanket may do the same.

When I teach the survival portion of the hunter safety course, I always recommend carrying a military poncho and SOL space blanket as shelter and 3 orange leaf bags that can be filled with leaves and used for sleeping on, sitting on and placed in a triangle in an open area during the day as a signal for help. I also recommend carrying a plastic painters drop cloth which can also turn the shelter into a super shelter.

Space blanket can help you hide from infrared. Make a roof with it and you can hide from helicopters.

Think a few people in the comments are a little confused here. The magic of the space blanket is that it reflects radiant heat back at you, for that to work best there needs to be a space between you and the blanket. If you touch the blanket it would be no different to covering yourself in a plastic tarp.
It reflects heat at you but it doesnt hold heat, which is where it differs from insulation. Hence why he tries to seal it up around him.and then puts another layer on to try and trap more air and also radiate more body heat back at him.
If you were to use it on the ground youd use it under your bedding insulation (sleepmat, boughs, etc.)
As a cover without fire youd use it under your tarp directly above you a few inches away from your body. (Try n trap that heat going up).
With some kind of radiant heat source like a fire youd want to reflect that heat back at you, youd probably make some sort of lean to configuration.
