Zero Gravity Graphene – Satellite Heat Pipes

According to the YouTube post: “In November 2017 Graphene Flagship researchers will experience weightlessness onboard a zero-gravity parabolic flight while they perform an experiment to test graphene-based thermal management devices for use in satellites.”

It added, “A team from Graphene Flagship partner institutes Universite libre de Bruxelles (Belgium) University of Cambridge (UK), CNR Bologna (Italy), and Leonardo (Italy) are designing an experiment to test how graphene-based coatings can improve efficiency in loop heat pipes, which are used as cooling systems in satellites.”

This was also featured in a coolingZONE story. Read more at
