    Description
    Space experiment MATI-75 is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of MATI - K.E.Tsiolkovsky Russian State Technological University and 150 th anniversary of the founder of the theoretical space science Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky. It is a demonstration effect of shape recovery of blanks made from cellular polymeric materials. To demonstrate the effect of shape and size recovery and stabilization when exposing to heating and cooling in zero gravity a plastic piece precompressed on the ground. To give students and post-graduate students practical skills in staging a space experiment and conducting ground studies of foamed polymer material structure obtained in the ground and space environments.
