From satellite heat pipes to advanced technologies for Antarctic research, Meganne Christian works on projects and ideas to bring graphene to extreme environments.
The Graphene Flagship has appointed Carlo Iorio as their Space Champion, to act as a spokesperson and interface for the Graphene Flagship’s efforts towards the integration of graphene and layered materials into space science and technology.
The Graphene Flagship participates in a sounding-rocket launch in collaboration with the European Space Agency to test the printing of graphene devices in space.
On May 2019, the Graphene Flagship embarked on a campaign of zero-gravity parabolic flights to test novel thermal management graphene devices for space applications. The unique properties of graphene can significantly improve their performance.
After a long summer of hard work in the laboratories, researchers in the Graphene Flagship are ready for two experiments this week, testing graphene technologies for space-related applications in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).
