NASA has taken steps for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led research institutes. The aim of these institutes will be to focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system.
Each of the STRI will be receiving an amount of $15 million over the period of 5 years. The two institutes are:
- Center for the utilization of biological engineering in Space (CUBES)
- Institute for Ultra-Strong composites by computational design (US-COMP)
It is anticipated that advances in laboratories could quickly translate to advances in manufacturing facilities with the help of industrial partners.
