Pagination or Media Count:
A passive tray was flown on the Effects of Oxygen Interaction with Materials experiment on STS-46 EOIM-III with 82 samples from The Aerospace Corporation. A variety of advanced materials related to potential uses on future spacecraft were included for evaluation representing optical coatings, lubricants, polymers, composites, carbon-carbon composite protective coatings, graphite protective coatings, thermal-control materials, and some samples of current materials. An overview of the available results from the investigations of these materials is presented.
