Origami Space Technology Combines Art, Design, Science November 03, 2017 share The URL has been copied to your clipboard 0:00 0:03:43 0:00 Now, he is taking his love of origami to a different place: outer space. Origami - Robert Salazar Salazar works with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the United States space agency NASA.

He says that ideas from origami can help design devices for research and exploration:"Origami offers the potential to take a very large structure, even a vast structure, and you can get it to fit within the rocket, go up, then deploy back out again.

"Researchers are using ideas from origami on several space agency projects.

Starshade Manan Arya is a technologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory 3 Nov 2017 - These include ways to fold devices like pieces of paper so that they can fit into rockets. The results combine art and high-technology..

Once the rocket reaches the correct point in space, the Starshade opens like a flower. This large flower shape is meant to block light to permit a space telescope to better see areas close to bright stars.

Starshade, Arya says, can be used to look for planets that orbit other stars Journal of Space Technology receives papers via email only. Authors have to submit their manuscripts both in PDF and in Editable text format (MS word or .

Starshade seeks to block out that starlight so you can image a really faint exoplanet right next to it. "Other uses: a Robot and an Antenna Researchers are also using ideas from origami to design a robot and a special antenna for satellites.

The robot is called the Pop-up Flat Folding Explorer Robot, or PUFFER.

This is a sample paper based on the concept of 'space technology

Salazar says the robot can explore environments "otherwise inaccessible" to a robot. It could even be used to explore cave systems on our own planet, he adds.

Antennas on satellites capture and send communications signals.

Arya notes that the idea behind the special antenna's design is to pack it into very small satellites that are known as CubeSats 30 Dec 2011 - Council on Thursday published a white paper on China's space activities in 2011. In so doing, China will do its best to make the country's space By implementing important space science and technology projects, the .

Arya says it is very useful to be able to fit large antennas into a small space:"The bigger the antenna you have, the more gain your antenna has, so it is useful to have a big antenna that gets packaged into this tiny space that unfolds out to be a large antenna. The biggest CubeSat antennas we have right now are about half a meter.

"NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory origami-based technologies have a graceful beauty.

In origami, Salazar said, art, science and engineering only have small differences 19 Dec 2016 - Full-Text Paper (PDF): A Position Paper on Civilian Space Development and Space Technology.
