This report presents data showing the effects of vacuum and combined vacuum and solar environments on fiber glass materials. Tensile and bending properties of these materials were determined after vacuum exposure periods of 5 and 60 days and the combined effects of vacuum and solar irradiation simulating a 200-nautical-mile orbit. Material density, elongation, thermal and optical properties were also determined.
