Scientists at Kennedy Space Center have developed a multifunctional composite laminate material for structural and thermal applications for use in residential and commercial construction. The innovation is a lightweight aerogel-fiber laminate composite system that has good compressive strength, tailorable impact and acoustic energy absorption, reduced heat transfer (compared to a fiber-only system), and fire barrier properties.
