Q&A with MTU Research Award Winner Gregory Odegard
The 2021 Michigan Tech Research Award winner, Greg Odegard (MEEM), develops ultrastrong composite materials for crewed deep space missions.
Composites are much like they sound: materials composed of different substances. Their components can enhance their overall strength, toughness, weight and other properties such as electrical conductivity. For example, deep space exploration demands composites that are both lightweight but incredibly strong.
That’s why Odegard got into carbon.
