Chemistry is Propelling Space Travel into the Future

Posted by Diane Milner on Sep 11, 2017 9:13:00 AM

Chemistry and space travel have always been inextricably linked. The first manned mission to the moon, in fact, was powered by combustion between hydrogen and oxygen. Today, advancements in chemical science hold great promise for space travel, both manned and unmanned, by improving everything from mechanics to food consumption.

How is chemistry propelling space travel into the next decade, century, and beyond? Here are some of the current projects Noah Technologies is paying close attention to.
