    Composite materials continue to play an especially important role in structures used in space travel and space research vehicles. High stiffness, low weight, and extreme dimensional stability are the properties which are most important for such applications. Ease of fabrication is an additional advantage in many cases. Three applications are briefly outlined below. Further information can be obtained from the NASA offices involved or from Hercules Incorporated, the manufacturer of the composite structures discussed.
