Ultra-light heat exchangers take the heat out of space flight
Space Technology : 10 January, 2014
Breakthrough heat exchange technology is the driving force behind a new generation of engines with the ability to operate in space and the earth’s atmosphere. Chemical engineers can find out more about the SABRE engine from Dr Robert Bond, corporate programmes director at Reaction Engines, at a special event hosted by the Institution of Chemical Engineer’s (IChemE) Thames Valley Members Group on 23 January 2014 in Reading, UK.
Single molecule sieves separate complex molecular mixtures
Space Technology : 20 February, 2013
Chemists at the University of Liverpool have created a new technique that could be used in industry to separate complex organic chemical mixtures. The findings are part of a five-year research programme in new materials discovery, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and are published in Nature Chemistry.
Black hole study will add to nanotechnology knowledge base
Space Technology : 04 October, 2012
Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh) scientists have been awarded EUR3 million (£2.35 million) to investigate new areas of quantum physics, looking at how energy and matter interact in a bid to revolutionise information and communication.
Spacecraft, heal thyself
Space Technology : 20 January, 2006
Once a spacecraft is in orbit, engineers have virtually no chance of repairing anything that breaks. But what if a spacecraft could fix itself?
Delft-designed heat shield a boon for spacecraft
Space Technology : 23 December, 2005
The ceramic heat shields used on craft like the Space Shuttle require huge amounts of maintenance. That is far less of a problem for metal heat shields. Those currently in development, however, are unable to withstand such high temperatures as their ceramic equivalents. But using water to cool the metal could change that.
Fastnet yacht runs faster with space technology
Space Technology : 10 August, 2005
Space has come down to Earth for this week's legendary Fastnet regatta. Competitor Marc Thiercelin's 20-metre Pro-Form yacht boasts lighter batteries, more efficient solar cells and advanced energy management systems - all spin-offs from Europe's space programmes.
Pioneering technology to explore other planets
Space Technology : 16 June, 2005
Drilling holes on other planets and inventing novel textiles to secure large structures in space are just two of the 27 challenges that expert teams have been working on in the first year of ESA's Innovation Triangle Initiative.
Revealed: Europe
Space Technology : 30 June, 2003
'Europe has a yearly budget of approximately 400 million Euro for space technology research and development. ESA provides half of this budget, while the rest is going through national channels,' said Hans Kappler, ESA Director of Industrial Matters and Technology Programmes. 'It is very obvious this investment has to be harmonised in order to avoid unnecessary duplications of activities and fill strategic gaps.'
