Composite Enhancing Nano-Barrier Could Change Spacecraft Construction

Jan 13th, 2020: Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite has been used for space missions for years and continues to be tested for further applications. Focusing on its limited use due to its water absorption rates, researchers at Airbus Defense and Space and the University of Surrey have created a layered ultralight, nanoscale barrier that could change how future spacecraft are built.
