The curvature of the sole from the heel to the toe of a boot to facilitate walking.
Two types of rocket launchers
During the three years of the project lifetime the consortium will investigate the areas of aerodynamics, aerothermodynamics (i.e. the temperatures that evolve at the surface of the vehicle during flight), flight dynamics, guidance, navigation and control, and advanced structural parts, materials and mechanisms. For th…
A type of capscrew with a round head and a hexagonal indentation for tightening purposes.
Ablative thermal solution P50 in next-generation launch rockets
Amorim Cork Composites is going to hit aerospace again, this time with United Launch Alliance (ULA) and Ruag Space.
How long has cork been incorporated into aerospace projects?
The start of cork being integrated into aerospace projects is associated with the North American space program, with the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, in the late 1960s. One of the most recent projects is the VEGA rocket, by the European Space Agency.
Cork is being used by Aerospace contractors working on the future spacecraft that are expected to take humans to Mars and deep space in the…
NASA is working with several prime contractors to build and launch the next generation of spacecraft designed for long-distances flights into space. The program is broken into two parts: the crew capsule, called Orion, and the rocket known as the Space Launch System (SLS). Cork is used as a heat shield, a key piece o…
Cork is being part of the news. What do you think that hasn't been said yet about cork in the space industry?
Cork… it’s not just for use on Planet Earth! Just as cork has been such an important component of the thermal protection of nearly every rocket launched from Earth, I expect it will find similar applications when we are visiting other moons and planets in our solar system and eventually launching rockets back home from…
In particular, at the technologies level it qualified: The structure, showing increased reusability and ability in comparison to other existing designs; The combined use of rockets and flaps for flight control, which increased the controllability and maneuverability for a precise landing; The understanding of aerothe…
