NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg preparing another colloidal fluid experiment aboard the International Space Station. This one examines colloidals classified as smart materials, transitioning to a solid-like state in the presence of a magnetic field. New manufacturing models based on these nanoparticles acting as self-assembling building blocks could improve or help develop brake systems, seat suspensions, stress transducers, robotics, rovers, airplane landing gears and vibration damping…
