Graphene Goes to Space and to the Moon


New rocket and lunar experiments involving graphene are informing space exploration. Applying graphene to the wheels of the Rashid moon rover will reveal whether this super strong material is also ‘Moon-proof’. Meanwhile, testing graphene-inks in a sounding rocket will test their ability to enable 3D printing in space – which could allow astronauts to create tools and materials they need even when far away from Earth.
