Sant’Agata Bolognese/Houston, 04/11/2019 – On November 2, a Northrop Grumman Antares rocket launched from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia to the (ISS), carrying with it a series of sample composite materials produced by Automobili Lamborghini. 

The launch is part of a testing campaign sponsored by the ISS U.S. National Laboratory and overseen by the Houston Methodist Research Institute. The joint research on advanced carbon fiber composite materials was initiated two years ago between Automobili Lamborghini and the Houston Methodist Research Institute. Its aim is to analyze the response of five different composite materials produced by Lamborghini to the extreme stresses induced by the space environment, in view of future applications on the cars from Sant’Agata Bolognese and in the medical field.
