join the to test five composite materials under extreme conditions. Samples of will be shipped to space on November 2, 2019.
This project was initiated two years ago by the Italian manufacturer and the Methodist Institute of Houston (USA) to study "The biocompatibility of composite materials and their potential use inand implants taking advantage of their lightness, as well as their and to the ". The information collected on these materials during this new phase of the project will therefore be exploited both in the field of automotive and in the biomedical field.
is the very first builder to operate the ISS for its research on materials in . Samples will remain on board the Station for six months, time to conduct temperature tests from -40 to +200 ° C and submit them to and gamma. Then, on the return of the samples on Lamborghini and the Methodist Institute of Houston will study their alteration.
