News - 01 November 2019 - Webredactie 3ME


MSE researchers (Dr. Vera Popovich) together with European Space Agency (ESA) and ADMATEC receive Ariadna grant to explore an out-of-box research idea aimed at developing 3D-printed functionally graded materials using in-space lunar resources. This proof-of-concept project will investigate the feasibility of additive manufacturing multimaterial gradients allowing to achieve tailored and user-defined functionalities in view of their application in aerospace components and space habitats.
