Deployable composite boom technology advances In space construction

Introducing the concept of a Deployable Composite Boom (DCB) based mast to support Operations at the lunar poles

Using multioriented carbon fibres, NASA engineers teams manage to create light composite booms with a wide range of original applications including building on lunar poles, communication support and solar sail structures for spacial propulsion using light radiation pressure.
