Research in space-age materials takes off with support from NASA
 

Summary: Research in space-age materials takes off
with support from NASA
Steven Schultz
Princeton NJ -- The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has
selected a consortium of research institutions, led by Princeton, to
develop new generations of materials that could lead to dramatically
more versatile and reliable airplanes and spacecraft.
NASA will fund the
project with at least $3
million a year for up to
10 years. The award will
establish an Institute for
Biologically Inspired
Materials to investigate
and design materials that
mimic the extraordinary
structural and self-
repairing properties of
biological substances
such as bone or sea
