This is the Materials In Space Home Page. Materials used
on the exterior of spacecraft, satellites and space stations in low Earth orbit are
subjected to many environmental threats which can cause degradation. Space environments
affect flight experiments and test the stability and durability of materials and devices
in the space environment. The goal of Materials In Space is to provide single-point
access to the data and analysis from research into materials in space. The Materials in Space data is
stored in NASA's Materials And Processes Technical Information System (MAPTIS).
