Smallest particles grow together. Does that happen faster in space?
Does glue work in space? More generally, do the properties of materials change when they form from liquid precursors in zero gravity? Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken have studied how the agglomeration of nanoparticles changes in the absence of gravity and published surprising differences in the journal Small.
