Title: Nanotube Reinforced Multifunctional Materials for Radiation Shielding
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNJ06JD67C
Award Amount: $70,000.00
 

Abstract:

NASA's programs to send manned and unmanned missions to Moon, Mars and the planets beyond will require structural materials that can protect the crew and the spacecraft from Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCR), Solar Energy Particles (SEP) and micrometeroid impact. In this Phase I effort, MMI proposes to reinforce high hydrogen content epoxies with nanotubes to obtain high performance composites with 20-25% higher primary load-bearing properties
