Nanotechnology Activities In Space

In view of the far-reaching innovation potential of nanotechnology and the world-wide boom in nanotechnology funding, the first objective of the ANTARES-study was to investigate, which nanotechnology activities can be determined within the space community. For this a screening of space specific nanotechnology activities was accomplished particularly in Germany, in Europe and in the USA. The basis for the stocktaking were literature-, data base-, and patent searches, research projects and programmes of DLR, ESA and NASA as well as interviews and workshops with experts of the space industry.
