Zyvex, UTD Collaborate To Make Worlds Toughest Material For NASA - New Technology

Nanotechnology company, Zyvex Corp., is working in collaboration with the University of Texas at Dallas to build a prototype of the worlds toughest material for NASA.

The two year contract will see them building carbon composite materials atom by atom and molecule by molecule.

As it costs around $10000 to launch one pound of material into space, stronger materials mean that spacecraft can be built dramatically tougher and lighter and therefore save money.
