Sticky business: bonding ultrastable space missions
Paris (ESA) Oct 15, 2014
A new ultrastable adhesive identified through ESA research could be a key to assembling rock-solid structures for space, including large telescopes, instruments and antennas to peer deeper into the cosmos or sharpen views of our terrestrial environment. The resulting ceramic bonding promises composite structures of several metres rigid down to a few thousandths of a millimetre. Such stability will be essential for new classes of space mission, such as multisatellite telescopes spaced hundred ... read more
