Chain mail was created with the help of 3D printing technology.
Created fabric different from the usual chainmail the fact that it is covered with small silver tiles. One side of the material capable of reflecting light, while the other is to absorb heat. Thus, it can serve as insulation against cosmic radiation or other external influences, to store thermal energy, preventing its dispersion and to reduce the damage that can apply the meteorites.
Chain mail was created with the help of 3D printing technology in which the fabric manufacturer is a layer behind a layer. The raw material was molten polymeric materials and metal powders. This allows you to create fabric, if necessary, on Board space ships and stations, not wasting time for its delivery from Earth.
Earlier, in March, physicists from the University of Central Florida proposed to produce composite materials containing hydrogen asteroid clay. According to them, they will be better protected from radiation than currently used aluminum.
The main danger to humans outside the Earth’s magnetosphere, are cosmic rays and flows of charged particles from the Sun (mainly protons). They stimulate the development of cancers and mutations.
