Not surprisingly, NASA is working on new developments for space travel—partnering with Auburn University to create new sensing technology, materials for 3D printing in space, as well as new hardware and capacitors (devices used to store electricity). In the latest from NASA MSFC Materials & Process Development , their goal is to create processes that can sustain production, recycling, and maintenance on-demand while astronauts are completing exploration missions. Beginning with a variety of different sensing platforms, the Materials & Process Development document outlines plans for flexible sensing technology such as next-generation printed sensors and platforms to be used for monitoring the health of astronauts while at the International Space Station (ISS), along with the specific, unique materials and new processes to create such devices. The document also outlines the need for both assessing and integrating wireless communications and flexible parts. For energy storage technology development, the following needs are […]
