The official website for US-COMP — one of two NASA Space Technology Research Institutes — is now live. US-COMP will focus on a Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) approach to accelerate design and deployment of carbon nanotube composites to enable human space missions to Mars. The US-COMP team is led by Prof. Greg Odegard of Michigan Tech and consists of 22 faculty members from 10 different universities, along with partners from AFRL and industry.  The team recently met at the University of Utah to hold a kick-off meeting for the 5-year, $15M institute.  For more information about the institute and to see a complete list of team members, please visit the official US-COMP website.
