To show possible clinical and also business qualities of producing unique fiber optics precede, an exclusive firm is collaborating with NASA on an examination headed to the International Space Station on the following Dragon freight ship. Matthew Napoli, vice head of state of In-Space Operations for Made In Space, discusses exactly how the Optical Fiber Production in Microgravity examination might result in the manufacturing of products with far better residential properties, establishing the phase for big range production of high-grade fiber precede. This examination acts on research study carried out in the 1990s by researchers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
