Northrop Grumman space freighter Soyuz MS-12 crew ship graphene em shields


The sensitive electronics aboard space vehicles, such as this Northrop Grumman freighter (left) and Roscosmos Soyuz crew ship, require shielding from electromagnetic radiation.

Incredibly strong, lightweight, and conductive, it was only a matter of time the out-of-this-world properties of graphene were considered for use by the aerospace industry. Now, University of British Columbia Professor Mohammad Arjmand and his team are embarking on a research project to develop 3D printed graphene-polymer nanocomposites to shield the electronics aboard satellites from the elect...
