NASA Materials Conference Features Science Results, Experts on Technologies for Exploration

Research contributing to better materials on Earth and seeking resources in space to fuel future exploration will be featured at NASA's Microgravity Materials Science Conference in the North Hall of the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Ala., June 6-8.

For three days, experts from across the nation will discuss current hot topics in their fields - such as nanotechnology and biomaterials. Media can hear about the latest research findings reported by hundreds of investigators from NASA, universities and industry.

The conference is hosted by Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville - NASA's Lead Center for Microgravity Research -- and the Microgravity Research Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Investigators funded by NASA's Human Exploration and Development of Space Enterprise will participate in a workshop to discuss taking advantage of materials on the Moon and Mars to advance space exploration -- called in-situ resource utilization. This research focuses on "living off the land'' by using lunar or Martian soil to build habitats, produce fuel, water and propellant. On the last day of the conference, the group will report its findings.

A preliminary schedule and speaker description follows. For the most up-to-date information, media should consult the conference Web site at: http://www.science.nasa.gov/colloquia/mmsm/matscience.htm

To arrange interviews or attendance at the conference, media should contact Steve Roy of the Marshall Media Relations Department at 256-544-0034.
