Aims and Scope
The symposium brought highly distinguished members of academia and industry together, who are shaping worldwide the research landscape on the discovery, synthesis, manufacturing and use of materials for present and future space exploration endeavours. Limited to no more than 80 to 100 participants, including about 20 invited speakers, it provided a platform for exchange of the latest ideas and presentation of novel results in this rapidly evolving and highly inspiring field. The symposium covered four main subject areas:
- space exploration applications,
- new materials engineering and manufacturing,
- physical chemistry of new materials,
- automated new materials discovery.
The talks spanned a wide range of topics, including: materials for habitats; materials for spacecrafts; materials for space suits; regolith and dust; gravityless manufacturing; abrasion, heat and radiation damage.
The MAPEX Center for Materials and Processes of the University of Bremen hosted the first Symposium on Materials for Space Exploration.
